I so love this topic. I took up cake decoratring as my hobby when I was just a young girl. Many years ago. I hate the fact that fondant has taken over so much. My love is buttercream. I have made some gumpaste flowers and fondant decorations. I made some gumpaste flowers for my parents 50th anniversary. But I could tell my mom really wanted buttercream roses. So thats what I did. I guess it's up to us that love buttercream to keep it alive. I remember fondant was always the British style of decorating. Buttercream was the style in U.S. I love my old cake yearbooks and books. I have collected tons of old cake mag. they all were mostly buttercream.

That is so true! Most of the new yearbooks are mostly fondant. Surprising from Wilton when they were so big w/buttercream. I guess you have to keep with the trends. I also remember when fondant was considered a European way of decorating. Wow it took us a long time and we are still not totally able to convince the customer because of the texture and sometimes taste. I still love buttercream. It is apples to oranges to fondant and you can't really compare the two.

feliciangel-what recipe are you using?

kteacher027- I also had to resort to ebay to get my books! I have a lot of the earlier yearbooks and also some of their hardbacks-love 'em!! thumbs_up.gif I especially love looking through them when I want to try a new border, all kinds of cool ones in those books icon_biggrin.gif

Monna7122-I'll offer up my recipe if you're still interested in trying new ones:

snns-I do sometimes do a crumbcoat, but just on the sides to even things out, I hate trimming cake so if I can get the sides nice and straight with the bc I'll go that route icon_lol.gif

lbass-Thank you!! I love making them, have another planned for this week, hopefully I'll be able to get it done icon_biggrin.gif

I keep saying I'm going to write a book called 'Bring back the Buttercream!!', I have seen some amazing works of art with fondant but it ceases to look like cake! I want people to look at my cake and want to eat it, not just admire it!

Buttercream girl here, too! Although I will confess, I've started to play with fondant, but so far only with accents.

I love the idea of a thread to celebrate the BC decorators. I always get a chuckle on here when I'm told I need to "get current" and start doing fondant and how my techniques are "so old fashioned", and out of the other side of their mouth, they are crying because BC is so hard and they can't do it (so..... that makes us BC people pretty talented, huh? icon_rolleyes.gif ) And I know it's just personal preference and what works best for each. Not harder ... not easier ... just different.

I did find it interesting to read on here that a person was so happy she took the Wilton MASTERS course and she was able to learn so many BC techniques. (hmmmmm ..... the MASTERS course, eh? icon_rolleyes.gif )

But for all of us BC people, allow me to share a wonderful compliment I rec'd from a wedding planner just a couple of weeks ago. When she saw my cakes, and then found out I was all BC, she said, "when you can create cakes like that in BC ... now THAT'S a real cake designer!"

I think I'm gonna cross-stitch that and hang it on my wall! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I love the taste of buttercream and most of my orders request buttercream. I also like fondant but the flavor of buttercream can not be beat.

When we went on vacation we were walking past what looked like an fancy bakery but it was closed. I looked in the window and told hubby it was a fondant place. He's like, 'You can't tell that, how do you know that?' I had to laugh, he has no idea! I could show him pictures of fondant and buttercream and he wouldn't be able to tell the difference! icon_lol.gif

Ah, no, can't help icon_sad.gif I have't used her recipe so I wouldn't even be able to trouble-shoot, have you sent her a message? How many times have you made it? Is it the same every time?
