I use either Swiss merengue buttercream or Italian merengue buttercream
Actually I have both her books, the well decorated cake and professional cake decorating which she uses for her classes. If you want I can scan the pages with the instructions and email them to your email address. Lomikesa
I use to have that problem when I put filling but since I started using the Toba Garrett spackling technique, I don't have that problem I don't even have to trim the cake anymore because the spackling takes care of even it out. Lomikesa
I do my buttercream writing in wax paper, freeze it and them place on top of the cake with a painters spatula. Lomikesa
You should ways use 50/50 gum paste & fondant. Or Buy tylose and knead some tylose powder into the fondant you want to harden. Lomikesa

Thank you Joni,I did buy one Sharon's first DVD "The Art of perfecting buttercream", and it was very helpfull. I think I will look into getting the flowless fondant one.Thank you and thanks to the rest who responded to my question.Lomikesa

I can't never get the sharp edges in my fondant cakes no matter how I try, they look round. I have the round and straight edgers but it still can't get the sharp edges like in some of the cakes I see in the galleries.I am wondering if maybe I need to roll the fondant real thick? can anyone give me some tips or is there a tutorial about sharp edges somewhere?Thanks for your response,Lomikesa
