I'm from the UK and the best buttercream I know of is just pure butter and icing sugar,


Its great because after the cake has been in the fridge it sets solid, it really sticks the fondant like glue!

Hope this helps! Good Luck! thumbs_up.gif

I agree with the PP that any butter-based buttercream will work well under fondant. I use SMBC on most of my cakes, which firms up very hard when chilled. It allows me to achieve a clean edge with fondant.
