So I use IMBC for my cakes. I prefer the flavor. I seem to have some problems getting really clean crisp edges and flat tops when I ice my cakes. I'm getting into bigger wedding cakes and it seems to just be getting harder and I want the clean edges and the flat tops that I see in pictures. So my question is does it make a big difference using a crusting butter cream as opposed to IMBC? I don't really wanna switch so any pointers or tips would really help. Thanks!
