So glad I found this thread. I absolutely love working with IMBC/SMBC--it's so easy to get a nice smooth finish with. I too wasn't crazy about the flavor when I first started making it, but have gotten used to it. It really does enhance the flavor of some cakes - eg, lemon cake with raspberry cream filling. HOWEVER, I find that a lot of people, ESPECIALLY KIDS, just don't like it. At my nieces graduation party (which I made the cake for) I watched serveral people devour the cake and filling (which oddly was SMBC with stuff mixed in) and leave the icing. I'd really like to find an icing that appeals to both the adults and kids. Going to try melysa's recipe. Has anyone ever mixed IMBC with a 10x based buttercream??? Thought I saw something to that effect somewhere here on one of the posts.
