Here's my ignorant question of the day:

I have made a number of meringue type buttercreams, but I don't know if they would be considered Italian or Swiss in make & model.

Is there a way you can define their differences? What would be the preference of one over the other?

Thanks in advance for the help, gals!

It doesn't mention Swiss specifically, but I can see that it is just variation of the Italian, as tiptop mentioned in the other thread.

Really awesome to have this encyclopedia of icings....thanks for share, Jan!!!!
