My client wants something like this done, but she doesn't like fondant. I told her it'd be difficult to do in buttercream and probably wouldn't achieve the same look. She said do whatever I needed too, but she'd prefer buttercream. I'd really like to make her happy though so in wondering if anyone has some tips on how to do this?
Or do you really think I'm just better off with thick buttercream and fondant blocks they can peel off?
AThis is where you say, "To achieve an acceptable result, fondant will be necessary." Do people think they are sacrificing buttercream if they get fondant? Cause I use just as much underneath as a cake without fondant would have. I don't know why anyone would do any differently.
AAnd honestly, how can even a cake muggle look at that and think buttercream could possibly mimic the sharp edges of plastic blocks, and the perfect uniform circle thingies.
the lego blocks could be made of candy melts clay, or modeling chocolate, but buttercream - no.
