  1. I was wondering if you used american buttercream to get the smooth finish on the cake? Did you use a certain high ratio shortening? I have been looking for a good brand and good tasting but still searching in Hamilton Ontario.

    Lovely work!

    • Hi Holly,

      Thank you for your question! I like to use Swiss meringue buttercream, made with real butter. The smooth finish was created using a palette knife and bench scraper.

      Hope that helps!
