As usual Indy, you are right on with what I was saying. I rarely do anything with fondant. I just wasn't sure how to get that effect with buttercream. Do you want your buttercream a little thicker to build up, or a little thinner to glide? Do you have a couple of favorite tips you like to use to do swags? I have the Wilton garland marker, but not sure how to get that look.Thanks everyone for your thoughts.
