Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a great tasting buttercream to frost my cakes with! Normally I do fondant cakes, so I just use buttercream as a "glue". But I got an order for a buttercream one today. Do I NEED to use a crusting buttercream? Whenever we buy cakes from out local bakery, its not a crusting buttercream. I'm also looking for a buttercream that is SUPER EASY TO SPREAD. Sometimes when I make a buttercream, it winds up turning the consistency of butter (and not so fluffy), making it very hard to spread. Any suggestions? What do you guys use for strictly buttercream cakes? Thanks so much!!!

Have you ever cut that in half for a small cake? I assume cutting in half would technically be the same taste, but I guess I have to ask, lol.

No I haven't. I make the whole batch, then any leftover is stored in the frig or fzr.
