Hey everyone!

I'm new to this so bare with me for a moment. I want to make a bridal shower cake in the shape of a wedding dress. There are so many beautiful examples out there! Here's my problem. I am great with buttercream, but I have never done anything with fondant. Is there a way to make this cake with buttercream and not use fondant for the dress? I realize I will have to use it for the torso, but I'd like to do the dress in buttercream. 

Any help would be appreciated!

Maybe if you show a picture of what you might like to do, CCers could better be able to answer you question...Is it a 3D cake? a flat cake? what did you have in mind...I don't know why you wouldn't be able to do either in butter cream.

Yes, please share an example of what it is that you'd like to make.

This is what I'd like to do, but in buttercream:

I was doing some general drawings and was thinking I could use the Wilton Doll Cake pan set normally for the cake (obviously) and then just pipe using Tip 1M for a nice swirl, like I do with cupcakes. But I'd like a smaller tip for smaller swirly roses I think. What do you think about that?
