Sorry, IMBC stands for Italian Meringue Buttercream and is a cooked icing made with egg whites and butter. Here is a link to the recipe I have posted.

My husband is a builder and you would not believe how many of his tools I use for my cake making. Go to Home Depot, in the drywall section, they have tons of plastic smoothers just like this one, in all shapes, sizes and angles. They range from under a dollar to about $10 and they work great.

I love Home Depot, too! I'm the handywoman in the house. I've tried some drywall edging tools myself, but they are not smooth around the edges and they tend to dig into the buttercream - especially for untrained buttercream users like me.

I'm in the process of making an insulated cake transportation box. That's my next project. Nothing like Lowes or Home Depot to get the creative juices flowing, ha? I wonder if they know how many of us shop there for cake decorating stuff.

mrsriff, what department in home depot would they be in? I would like to go & look at them before I order. I just love it when everyone shares information. What a wonderful family we have.

OK this may be a dumb question, but please bear with the newbie here...how thick is the frosting on your cakes? I looked at the pic Gingerela posted and there seems to be a lot on there - whenever I smooth my frosting it almost all comes off and I get a layer just a bit thicker than my crumb-coat. What am I doing wrong?

If you can't use it directly on buttercream, then how do you use it? I purchased an item like this at a local hardware store for 7 bux, much cheaper but I haven't used it yet. I will have to try it once I purchase .



katerpllrgrl....what was the name of the item that you bought???

I just got a reply to my e-mail to Global Sugar Arts. The owner said he is not discontinuing the sharp edger. He just needs to have a really large order in order to get them. He should have them in in a couple of weeks. He said he can order extras if we let him know how many we need.
