As long as its made with real butter you cant go wrong... but its my understanding that Cali4Dawns is the choice. I havent tried it YET, but this weekend I made wiltons with real butter and it was out of this world! Decorated nicely too!

Wilton's is probably good as long as you add the butter. I've never used it, so I can't say.

Oh yeah- everyone needs to remember that I did not make up this recipe. I did make up the modifications for roses.. but I did not make up the recipe. I guess I've been using it and advocating it for so long that it has now become known as mine.

I don't want to take credit for something I did not do. I got it from another decorator about 2 years ago.

But man, it's good... huh???!

Calidawn, I saved and printed your BC for frozen transfers, do you use the same one for icing the cake? Janice

Yes, I use it for 99% of my buttercream needs.

Oh gosh, I still have to think about that every time I decorate.

I have only been decorating a few months but it seems that this will always be a situation to deal with as far as setting aside how much for decorating etc. I have to think really hard so I don't run out if I'm using colors etc etc. I think it's just trial and error and most of the time I overestimate and always have too much leftover. As far as the Wilton BC or Dawns - wilton's CLASS BC - NASTY! Now 1/2 Crisco 1/2 butter is what I use and it's soo much better than the CLASS, but I've printed off a copy of Dawn's and will be trying it soon as I am in search of that perfect BC to fit my style!

Where do I find Dawn's BC recipe? I have to do another cake tomorrow and two next week and all I have ever used is the decorator icing. Maybe I will get brave enough to post mine...I am my worst critic.
