Can anyone tell me which is the best buttercream to use? The recipes are similar, but what are the strenghts or weaknesses for each?
Thank you for your input.

Between those two I don't think there is a best. The recipes can very greatly. It's all about which technique you prefer. I prefer IMBC. I don't want to stand over a bowl, and hand whisk LOL. It's personal to which you choose.

I 100% agree with Mike.I have piped roses and borders with the IMBC.You should try both and see what you think.
