I think I'm gonna have to try a FBCT for the first time..I have a hockey puck cake to do and she doesn't want fondant so that means black buttercream.Now it is just easier to cover the whole cake in black buttercream but then I can't use my projector for the logo ontop because you can't see the image on black icing...so I was think of making the logo but I use WBH icing and it doesn't freeze solid enough to peel off of wax paper...

Anyone have a good BC recipe that is good for FBCT.


Thanks

I use my basic all crisco recipe, pretty much like Wilton's recipe when I do mine. You could use IndyDebi's recipe, or even a recipe that is half and half butter and crisco.

Like you said, it just needs to be something that freezes solid.

Cake Central should come with a decoder wheel. icon_smile.gif What is FBCT?

Actually it sorta does. When you see the little dots under a word or letters, if you hoover your cursor over it it will tell you what those letters stand for.

FBCT stands for Frozen Butter Cream Transfer.

The above is an article about it, though everyone does them a little different. icon_smile.gif

This is the recipe I use. If I am making a cake with a FBCT, I usually use this as an icing for the whole cake. It is delicious!

Just made one today... http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2142328

Edited to add for Kiddiecakes:
I absolutely LOVE the WBH buttercream. I use it at every opportunity. Sad to say, most people I bake cakes for prefer the sweeter American buttercreams.
