Ok, what is the difference between IMBC and SMBC ? Which one do you think is better? Is one easier to make and is easier to work with? Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

There are quite a few different recipes for both, so i can only comment on the two that I use. My IMBC and SMBC recipes are nearly identical. Once finished they taste and handle exactly the same. The only difference being, obviously, being the technique through which they are prepared. Swiss, I feel, is easier to prepare (at least for those not comfortable/familiar with cooking sugar to various stages). Also, an Italian meringue is more stable than a swiss, therefore IMBC is a slightly more stable product.
