You can use a crusting buttercream, but you want to do this before it crusts too much. The advantage of a non-crusting BC: you are not in a hurry.

I honestly don't know about the recipe you mentioned. I used whipped cream icing (actually I used Frosting Pride) for the cake in the tutorial.

Use whichever recipe you prefer the taste of. Just make sure you are ready with your "sprinkles" before you ice the cake so you can get the stuff on before the crust appears. And You can do it afterward.... but it's just easier before hand.

Thank you Cali4dawn!!!

I have never heard of Frosting Pride. I'm going to see if I can find that to try it out.

Thanks again!

Hey Southerncake... I just realized you are in NC. I lived there 20 years (miss the green and the great ocean and Barefoot Landing- this ocean is too cold year round)

Anyway, you won't find Frosting Pride there. It's only sold on the west coast. Believe me, this conversation has been had before, many times.

You might find Rich's products there in your local BJ's or Sam's or Costco. I think BJ's. (We don't have BJ's here.) If you find Rich's products, it's a whipped cream icing. Or can make your own stabilized whipped cream. I've heard Wilton's recipe is pretty good. But I haven't tried it since I have Frosting Pride available to me.

This method works just fine with buttercream, though. Don't be "a-feared." icon_rolleyes.gif
