That would be "completely-fondant-free". ......
No one in my circle of friends and family will touch fondant, so I have to fit into the buttercream only......with candy and chocolate transfers acceptable.....world.
I have often seen the threads for buttercream only decorators and I have enjoyed them, but I just thought it would be fun to see a bunch fo pictures of what everyone would consider to be their best CFF cake.
Anyone want to play?
I would post one myself, but I don't yet have a cake that I would consider to be my "best". That's coming down the wire soon, I'm sure.
Thanks to anyone who posts. I would love to see your creations.
Heather...all of my cakes are fondant free...with the exception of a fondant bow. This is my favorite cake...it was also my first wedding cake. It was for my sister and my family is the same way, they can't get over chewing their icing (fondant).
I know its not the most creative or extravagant cake...but I'm just learning and I'm just a hobbiest. At least the bride was thrilled with it.
Goodness, I don't know which one to pick. Of the 95 cakes I have posted 64 are cff. The ones that aren't have fondant roses, daisies or autumn leaves.
OMG I LOVE your Thomas the Train cake. My 2 year old LOVES Thomas and I wanted to do a cake like that so bad for him but I just couldn't talk myself into doing it, I had no confidence in myself to do that cake but I would've loved too. That is awesome that you did it all in bc too.
That is harder than I realized! I considered myself practically CFF because I rarely get to use fondant. Looking at my cakes though almost every single one has some fondant on it. I would have chosen my T-Rex which I am particularly proud of, but even he has fondant teeth and claws!!!
These are my only CFF!
I think these are some of my better work...
This one is my fave for sentimental reasons only...
I don't have one favorite. The thing I like most about decorating with buttercream is just how versatile it is. I also do not decorate elaborate show cakes. I guess my attention span is short. If I spend more than 2 hours on a cake I get bored and don't finish it. I also feel cakes are made to be eaten. Sooooo.......
The hummingbird is gum paste but everything else is BC.
Those are amazing!!!
What a great thread!! All of the cakes are just beautiful!!!
