My daughter's birthday is coming up and we're expecting about 40 friends and family to join us for a party. It's very important to me to make the cake myself and I'm planning on making my first tiered cake. Does anyone know if I can used boiled flour icing for the cake instead of swiss buttercream? I am really good at making the boiled flour icing, but never tried the buttercream, which is what my recipe calls for. I am not using rolled fondant, but the party is in December in New York, so heat won't be a problem.
Also, any other tips or tricks for a great stacked tiered cake? I'm finding the internet surprisingly unhelpful as I prepare for this project. Thank you!
