THANK YOU SHARON Z!! (Sugarshack)

I had the HOTTEST weekend of my cake decorating life this past weekend. I use a version of your icing, and even though it was 100+ degrees, and HUMID - and the A/C was not working at the venue (which was a VERY nice venue here) The cake icing HELD and was PERFECT!! I was on pins and needles after delivery because it was soooo hot, but I got an email from the MOB raving about the cake, and today I got a call from the FOB making sure I knew how happy they were with the cake! THANK YOU for sharing all you do!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments on the cake. I knew the icing was good, but had never *tested* it to the limits like this before! I was really pleased, and that venue now knows that you do not HAVE to use fondant covered cakes if you don't want to! icon_biggrin.gif (at least not if you order them from me!) thumbs_up.gif

Very beautiful cake. I use Sharon's icing also, I love it, especially since my husband bought me a cuisinart mixer for christmas. In fact, I have a wedding cake that is due the 29th and I will be using her icing for it also (petal effect). This cake can't be set up until after the wedding (that I am attending) and will have to set in the vehicle for at least 3 hours before I will be able to set it up at the venue.

I just got her flower DVDs and I also love them. If I'm not careful I am going to end up owning every one of her DVDs. icon_lol.gificon_wink.gif

A VERY beautiful cake, Loucinda, and I'm also a convert to Sharon's buttercream. I recently bought her DVD on icing with buttercream, and it's gotten me out of the fondant rut I was in. Not that I'm going to stop using fondant, because I love the way looks, but at least I'm not so limited anymore! And the news about its standing up in 100 degree weather is music to my ears, living in the heart of the tropics as I do (and wouldn't you know it - one of my daughters and my two granddaughters all have their birthdays at the end of August and the beginning of September, the height of the heat here in Cancún)!

The recipe is easy to find, sfandm. Just go to the recipe section here on CC and put "sugarshack's buttercream" in the search window. The recipe was posted by sugarshack (Sharon Zambito) herself. I can't believe that the addition of coffee creamer makes such a difference, not only in the taste, but in the texture of the icing, but it sure does. It completely eliminated my problem with air bubbles and it's much creamier than regular American buttercream.

Love and use Sharon's frosting too! I just received the wedding bouquet and OMG the frosting was so incredibly delicious. It elevated the frosting which I didn't think was possible. Sharon you ROCK! icon_biggrin.gif

I make her recipe all the time. I love it! One of these days, though, I need to order the wedding bouquet and try it. I normally use vanilla/butter, sometimes a bit of almond, sometimes a bit of cream bouquet.

I remember the first time I made it, I used all cream bouquet, thinking it was the same thing as wedding bouquet. It was really good, but it tasted just like a dreamsicle. Not the flavor I was going for. But I colored it orange, piped it on some vanilla cupcakes, and called them dreamsicle cupcakes. Everyone loved them.

Don't bite off more than you can chew.  One day you may not be able to swallow.
