Check out this recipe and photos.  It pretty much explains it all.   http://sweetapolita.com/2011/04/swiss-meringue-buttercream-demystified/
In my opinion this recipe makes a medium density cake (can be carved). It is moist and has a delicate crumb. I never have to use a soaking syrup and I get compliments are how moist and delicious it is. It is even better right from the fridge!
Awesome! It's so important to do what you love and love what you do. Best of luck to you!

I was in a situation like this with a medical laboratory job, except my nemesis was the owners son-in-law! So I thought my only option was to resign. When I gave my notice to the owner he asked why and I told him. "Your SIL is a monster and I can no longer work for him". Instead of being told "we'll miss you" he said "sit down and tell me about it". I told him the facts, no emotion, and he listened. Then he told me to please reconsider my resignation because he...
All commercial fondants smell and taste like chemicals to me, except Choco-Pan. I make MFF with white chocolate candy melts and it taste better and cost less than anything I can buy pre-made.
