This is a Sharon Zambito design, that I modified slightly. This is the first time I used buttercream, and I followed along with Sharon's BC video, and I think the result is pretty good. The only thing I would have done differently was to crumb coat the cake first. I didn't do that, because Sharon didn't do it on the video, but I think I would have benefitted from a crumb coat. The cake is chocolate, so it was difficult to keep crumbs under control. The loopy bow was also my first attempt. I'm pleased with how it turned out. TFL!
