AI just made wilton buttercream and unfortunately we hate the taste it was too sweet and greesy even with 2 tbs of lemon juice and a pinch of salt added.i have made some gumpaste roses and my question is: is there anything else exept fondant and ofcourse bc that I can put my flowers on without melting?something like sweet heavy whipped cream?
Look up a recipe for Italian Meringue Buttercream. You'll be pleased. A lot more effort, but worth it. Has the mouth feel of a sweetened whipped cream, but is more stable. And if your gumpaste roses were fully cured, there's not much that could "melt" them. Maybe change your gumpaste source?
thanks Denise NH.well i was frightened if they would melt so i put them on fondant ,i didn't dare to put them on anything else!
there is another question:
why i can't use whipped cream under fondant?
AI don't think whipped cream is sturdy enough to hold fondant. You wouldn't get a nice looking fondant cake. You might like Swiss meringue buttercream. It's less sweet and works great under fondant.
