Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
I agree with the reviewers that said this comes out a little greasy. I think if you really know what you're doing, this isn't a great recipe. If, however, you're a newbie, the "greasiness" allows you to work with the fondant a TON, which can be a good thing. I was able to incorporate a lot of powdered sugar as I worked with this and figured out exactly what I wanted to do. Overall, it really is okay, but I'm going to look for another recipe for next time.

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
My Mom has been making this frosting for so long that I actually thought it was a "secret family recipe". Oh well. But the part that does seem to be secret? DO NOT USE POWDERED SUGAR, PEOPLE. And if you don't follow the recipe, and you get a crappy product, that is not the fault of the recipe and a reason to give something a 1-star rating. Made properly this really is the best frosting you'll ever taste. My criticisms of this recipe as written: flour + water (milk in this case) = lumps if not handled properly. Ever had lumpy gravy? That's why. Mix the flour and milk VERY WELL and VERY QUICKLY before cooking. I use an immersion blender and mine always comes out great. This mixture doesn't have to form a ball, as some have mentioned, but a thick paste. I let it sit out to cool while I made the other half of the recipe, not in the 'fridge. Either stir while it cools or press plastic wrap against the surface to avoid the "skin".
