Hi, I was wondering if anyone has a great idea for a buttercream only cake.  I teach cake classes and I usually teach the basketweave with the royal icing flowers which takes up two classes.  I want to get away from the royal icing, so I need ideas for buttercream cakes.  I do the rose cake, piping transfer and the clown cake.  Ideas are greatly appreciated.  Thank you, Teresa

Google Queen of Hearts cakes...she does everything in butter cream, and amazing designs at that. Maybe that will inspire you.

Try this below and watch each video!! She tells which decorator tip to use for each cake while showing how to hold the tip with bag to make the flowers. Good luck
