Hi everyone,
I am planning to make between 60 to 80 cupcakes using the WASC recipe found on CC for a baby shower on Sat and I want to ice using IMBC (only made SMBC in the past) my question is how many batches of IMBC should I make to cover this many cuppies? If anyone can help a newbie out it would be greatly appreciated icon_smile.gif Thanks in advance! BTW, I will be using a 1M tip......

Well, i'm not really sure how much a recipe of IMBC makes, but guessing from experience, I would say perhaps 2-3 batches. Depending on how high you ice them, if you're making decorations out of the frosting too, etc.

Good thing it's not too time consuming to make. You could always start with 2 batches and see how far that takes you. It won't be too hard to just whip up another batch if you find yourself running out.

The only difference between the two is the way the syrup is added to the whites. If your IMBC recipe has the same amount of stuff as SMBC, you should get the same amount.

IMBC gives you a stiffer consistency do to the cooked syrup, but not like an Amercan buttercream. It's till smooooth.

I would like to thank everyone for the tips and all the help I received icon_smile.gif I ended up making a double batch of IMBC which was just enough for 69 cupcakes. I even had someone tell me they would eat it on crackers, white bread, wafers or straight out the bowl lol! icon_biggrin.gif Thanks for helping me, you all are amazin' thumbs_up.gif
