That is beautiful work! I haven't bought this class yet because of the taste of Royal icing ( what I had tasted in the paste) was awful) . I was wondering it is possible to create the same designs with buttercream ( I know not possible to make that dome with the rose on top with buttercream)?

You can flavor your royal icing in the same manner you flavor your buttercream. You can usually do the same kind of work using buttercream...just make sure you are working with a stiffer consistency so that it will stand up to the design and not sink into lower layers. You should practice on parchment paper. You can even cover the bottom of a cake pan with parchment paper if you want to practice on something 3D and you don't have a dummy cake (Styrofoam). Just trace the bottom of your pan and cut the traced circle for the bottom and then cover the sides with a strip.

I have found that if you use lemon juice (instead of water) to make the different consistencies of icing, the tanginess from the lemon balances the sweetness from the royal icing to give a quite pleasant taste.
