Hello everyone, I'm going to do a rose cake, it is my first time doing it so I don't know which frosting is better. Well I don't like the American Buttercream cause it is too sweet and taste a lot of butter, I saw there is the Swiss Meringue Buttercream and I want it to try and do it with this one, but I don't know if it's work well as the American Buttercream. The thing is I don't want my roses to melt.  Can someone please help me with this. Thanks :)

Do you mean roses as in the kind you make on a flower nail or rosettes as in with a 1M tip?  SMBC is great for rosettes as you have have some good definition but it is softer and roses can certainly be made with a rose tip and flower nail, but they are not quite as crisp as ones made with ABC.  SMBC is not as sweet as ABC but it is quite buttery as well.  You probably need to know the preference of whomever you're making the cake for.  Opinions run pretty deep about what people like on their cake!
