I know years back I used a different brand powdered sugar because it was on sale and my buttercream was super grainy and I could not figure out why.

It is definitly worth it. I got my in 1990 to do my sister's wedding cake. It was the first wedding cake I made. I was scared to death. She said "nothing to be nervous about, think of it as 3 cakes put together"!! My mom bought the Floating tier cake stand and that is how I got started making wedding cakes!! Not only have I used it for wedding cakes, I have used it for a graduation cake, to served desserts on it for my children's Confirmation parties, family get...
