I have done hundreds of cookies using rolled buttercream and just love how it is to work with and the taste.

Has anyone here used it on cupcakes? Just not sure. Maybe I'll give it a whirl but wanted to ask.

So I've never heard of rolled buttercream before is it something you make or buy... Would love to know more about it?

I make it. It is sweet, but goes great with sugar cookies. I just don't think that Fondant goes with cupcakes, but wondered about the rolled buttercream.

I use the rolled marshmallow fondant. It is a little less greasy than the rolled butter cream, but tastes pretty much the same. I don't think you would have a problem using it on cupcakes. I don't think it would be too heavy for cupcakes. I might try that myself. icon_biggrin.gif

Good to know. I think I'll do some this week. I'm doing my daughter's wedding on the 24th, so I need to nail down my ideas. I am so excited!

I'll post my results and let you know.

I love it on NFSC and think it would be very good on cupcakes. (I have not " warmed up" to fondant on cookies or cupcakes...although I love the way it looks!) The RBC just tastes so much better!

I have to agree with you about the Fondant on cupcakes; there is just something about it that doesn't seem right.

Wilton site has one recipe. Just be patient with working with it, takes time and some practice I've found.
