Homemade Fondant / Sugarpaste Recipe. Another pinner: The BEST Fondant recipe! Kids and adults loved it and asked for seconds. Tastes almost like buttercream, rolls thin and is easier to work with than store-bought. A definite pin-keeper.
A crusting buttercream is one that will set up firmly enough so that it can be touched lightly without making a mark. Although still relatively delicate, this buttercream technique can be a very helpful asset to decorators, making a nicely primed surface for all sorts of cake decoration, from decorative piping to fondant or gum paste adornment.
