Buttercream girl here, too! Although I will confess, I've started to play with fondant, but so far only with accents.
I love the idea of a thread to celebrate the BC decorators. I always get a chuckle on here when I'm told I need to "get current" and start doing fondant and how my techniques are "so old fashioned", and out of the other side of their mouth, they are crying because BC is so hard and they can't do it (so..... that makes us BC people pretty talented, huh?
) And I know it's just personal preference and what works best for each. Not harder ... not easier ... just different.
I did find it interesting to read on here that a person was so happy she took the Wilton MASTERS course and she was able to learn so many BC techniques. (hmmmmm ..... the MASTERS course, eh?
But for all of us BC people, allow me to share a wonderful compliment I rec'd from a wedding planner just a couple of weeks ago. When she saw my cakes, and then found out I was all BC, she said, "when you can create cakes like that in BC ... now THAT'S a real cake designer!"
I think I'm gonna cross-stitch that and hang it on my wall!
