I'm a newbie icon_biggrin.gif and of course, like everyone else, really dislike the taste of Wilton's Buttercream recipe.

I'm making the buttercream dream frosting, but it doesn't say if it will crust? icon_confused.gif

Thank you everyone for your help! icon_biggrin.gif

If it doesn't icon_confused.gif is it because it's too thin?

Does it matter if I'm at high alltitude? icon_rolleyes.gif

That is what I use all the time and it crusts nicely. It might take a little longer if it is too thin, but I have never had a problem with it not crusting!

Hi everyone. I'm a newbie also and i've been looking through the site but i haven't been able to find the buttercream dream frosting that you have been talking about. I'm going to try and make a drum cake for my husbands birthday and was wondering if anyone could give me some tips. Thanks.

That is what I use to frost my cakes. The first pic in my photos was frosted with it and it smoothed so nice.

Since this uses butter will this be a yellowish color? I'm looking for a different BC icing and want a white color. TIA

Thank you everyone for your help. I'm searching thru the internet to figure out different ways to make some other kind of version of this cake.

http://www.coolest-birthday-cakes.com/childrens-birthday-cake.html#c2


I want to make it a little bit bigger than what this person made it (for my husband's bday) and I wasn't sure whether i should use gum paste, fondant or if I'm suppose to use both. I'm thinking I would take a 9x13 and use as a stage to put the drums on. This is going to be the first cake that i make like this. I've only made cake pan boxed cakes so any tips, hints, HELP!!!!!! is greatly appreciated. Basically i need someone to teach me baby steps like a new student. Again, thanks everyone for any help that you can give icon_biggrin.gif

mis,

I did find this recipe to make "white" icing. I can't call it snow white white, but it was white. I'm told that health food stores carry butter that hasn't been dyed yellow.

It does taste wonderful, crusts great and it beautiful to work with.

You should try it! icon_biggrin.gif

I use the buttercream dream at high altitude all the time and have never had a problem with it crusting. as for the yellow, if you take a TINY BIT of violet and mix it in, it will counter-balance the yellow and make it white

If it will not crust, it may be because the shortening that you are using is transfat free. I have found that I have not gotten great crusting it is when I am using crisco which is now transfat free.
