My client wants something like this done, but she doesn't like fondant. I told her it'd be difficult to do in buttercream and probably wouldn't achieve the same look. She said do whatever I needed too, but she'd prefer buttercream. I'd really like to make her happy though so in wondering if anyone has some tips on how to do this?
Or do you really think I'm just better off with thick buttercream and fondant blocks they can peel off?
