I am not sure if this is the proper forum for this posting but I think it is since it's relating to the topic at hand.

This weekend I was finally able to obtain a copy of Sugarshacks video on Perfecting the Art of Buttercream.

Each time I looked for it in my cake supply store it was always sold out but this time I got lucky and picked up one of 2 copies left on the shelf.

The other copy was picked up by another caker shopping in the store and left before I was even paying for mine.

I watched the video yesterday and I must say even my husband sat a watched for a spell; he said the music reminded him of soft core porn and with that comment I quickly banished him from the room LOL!

I quickly went to work mixing up my first batch of buttercream and was extremely pleased with it's light and fluffy texture.

I substituted almond flavor for the wedding bouquet flavoring but felt it turned out very nicely.

I iced my cake following your instructions as detailed in your video and my test cake turned out to be the smoothest flawless surface I have ever seen.

Even my husband had asked me why I put fondant on the cake when I was trying this new buttercream recipe...he was very surprised to realize when he stuck his finger in it to find it was all buttercream.

The true test came when I took the cake into work this afternoon and everyone had a piece....

The compliments were beyond words and everyone just loved your recipe and commented on how smooth and light the buttercream truly was.

Sharon, if you do read this I just want to say thank you so very very much!

I have always work with fondant and will continue to do so, but you have inspired me to do more cakes using buttercream which I plan on doing in the very near future.

I cant wait to get the rest of your videos and experimenting with square cakes, something I have always tried to avoid doing as corners are not my thing!

Thank you so much and don't change the music I thought it was perfect just the way it is.
