Hi there I just the same recipe as my cupcake butter cream but I am in the uk and we dont go in for all the different flavours. I think you can pretty much use any butter cream but I am new to this too so could be wrong.

Happy caking and welcome to CC

Hi and welcome!!!

The more cakes you cover with fondant, the more you will figure out what you like best. When I use buttercream, I like a crusting buttercream, and I prefer Indydebi's recipe, but there are a lot of recipes out there. My favorite is ganache - then fondant. Good Luck!
