I just posted a baby shower pic that I did in fondant with buttercream borders, I had no problems. As for the buttercream recipe I would think you could use any buttercream but I use the buttercream dream recipe I got from this site. Hope that helps!

you can use fondant and buttercream together. Most of us use bc under fondant, too. Also you can use fondant accents on bc, so you should be just fine!
