fondant flowers v. buttercream flowers

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
In my current cake class we made a bunch of different flowers using buttercream. In the next class we will be using fondant. I like the way fondant flowers look, but my question is, which is easier to do? Next week I'll be posting my first cake!!!! Well, it's actually my second cake. icon_razz.gif The first one did not turn out that good. thumbsdown.gif

Hi there. icon_smile.gif I'm not experienced with buttercream flowers yet, but I love working with fondant. I just made my first fondant roses a few weeks ago and had so much fun with them. You obviously have artistic ability--fabulous artwork on your website!--, so if you're good with clay too or with any kind of sculpting, I think you'd find fondant flowers easy and fun to create. Good luck. icon_smile.gif

It's a matter of opinion. To me, most are easier and faster in BC... but you'll hear varying opinions on this.

Thanks! I wish the artistic ability was mine. But alas it tis my wife. It's great being married to an artist. She helps me with colors and can freehand anything I want an a cake. icon_biggrin.gif

Ah! Well, you just don't know yet which way will be your favorite, then. I say, just start, and see which you like more. icon_smile.gif
