Thank you so much K8memphis. I am not sure about the liquid. It could be possible that the butter I use could have changed its contents. I just know I haven't changed anything that I am doing! Very frustrating!

Could someone please tell me what is happening to my crusting buttercream? This has just started happening with my last couple of cakes. I have not changed anything.

It's made up. Cut a circle that will serve as the base the size you want the flower to be. Then use a small circle cutter to make the petals. Beginning on the outside edge place your circles around, overlapping a little as petals would. Work your way inward staggering the petals. Hope this makes sense. I am going to attempt,to post a pic of a cake using this technique. Mine were done making them much more "cutsie" and less real looking but it is the same technique. When I...
