I am attempting to do a sheet cake with a Mickey Mouse clubhouse theme on it. (all done in frosting) I am looking for a frosting recipe that I can use to both frost the cake and decorate with. But i don't want it too sweet. if you want to see what I am trying to attempt here is the link to the cake:

I want a good tasting frosting just not sweet. Please help! Party is Saturday Feb. 6th. Also, any opinions on covering cake in fondant rather than frosting?

Try Tami's buttercream at the website. I was unable to post the link.

I don't have separate icings that I ice with and decorate with. icon_confused.gif I use the same icing for everything.

I use IMBC to frost and decorate.

The meringue based buttercreams are usually a little less sweet, but there are some good recipes on this site for American type BC or other frostings that are less sweet tasting.
