I am making my sister's 40th birthday cake this weekend.
Carrot cake with buttercream and fondant.
I'd love to use cream cheese buttercream but I can't as it is going to be super hot and I can't put it in the fridge once the fondant is on it.
What I was thinking of using was orange buttercream with maybe a little mixed spices in it... What are your thoughts?
I will probably fill it lightly and also use it for the crumb coat under the fondant.
What are the best recipes? I have found one on Wilton which uses vegetable shortening that apparently I can substitute for Copha.. Anyone tried this?
Thank you so much. Any help really appreciated
