I need a simple buttercream recipe. This will be my first time making my own. Also could someone guide me to the marshmallow fondant recipe? Is it sturdy enough to make little cut outs that will harden?

Thanks so much. There really is a WEALTH of info and I cant wait until I have time to read through more. I am making a hannah montana cake (inspired by a couple from cake central!) for my daughters 6th birthday this weekend.

Thanks again!

Here's a good crusting buttercream recipe:

and here's one for MMF:

I haven't had a chance to make the MMF yet as I haven't worked with fondant yet but I do plan on trying it out. From what I have read you can use it for what you have in mind. Let us know how your cake turns out and please post a pic for us to see!

Good Luck and HTH! icon_biggrin.gif
