I have a bride who wants BC on her cake tiers instead of Fondant.
What is the best type of buttercream to use b/c that I can place flowers or scrolls (whatever she decides) onto the cake?
Are you offering her a tasting?
If you use a couple of different butter cream recipes now, I would make them and see which she prefers.
I have some brides who like a sweet ps butter based butter cream and others that prefer a meringue based less sweet type.
If using ps buttercream go with a crusting one so you can smooth and apply any decorations you would like. I live in Fl and with this heat only make meringue based buttercream for desert cakes not for decorating. Let me know if you need a recipe.
I'm a big fan of Sugarshack's buttercream. It crusts so well that you can smooth it perfectly. It truly is an amazing icing.
