Make Rolled Buttercream and Let's Play July 22 2021

This stuff is fun and much easier to create shapes and designs with than fondant. It's delicious too. Bring a cup of buttercream, a bag of powdered sugar, a sifter, a bowl, and corn syrup. If you have glucose bring that to class too. 

I used mats that I have in my tool box. Hopefully you have something you can use to make imprints. Cutters in all shapes and sizes can be used. Let's explore what we an do with this new medium.
