Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake Buttercream Icing Recipe used in Modern Buttercream class Fondant What are you most proud of? The fondant flowers and the way the buttercream turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I tried making the icing once with a hand mixer and once with a stand mixer. It took a little over and hour to whip the eggs by hand mixer and was very fustrating. I suggest using a stand mixer.
