The Sweetest Thing... Buttercream

As I mentioned in my article, 2010 is bringing back buttercream. Buttercream icing is more affordable and preferable among cake connoisseurs. Where as fondant is beautiful but usually pealed off by guests and discarded. Bakeries are finding new ways to make buttercream and traditional frostings look smooth like fondant.
You tell me which is buttercream and which is not....

truth is - they are ALL buttercream!

Bakeries can smooth buttercream to look like fondant and
apply decorative sugar flowers, fondant accents and gold leaf to dress it up.
