I saw the same. But I was thinking shouldn't it be 3 egg whites instead ? I thought it was a typo on the websites part .. I might be wrong tho. Never made any buttercream with the whole egg. Humm

I have seen this recipe before some years back. Actually, this is correct. I wish i could remember who makes this also. I will look in my recipes. It is just like making smbc or imbc. You just use whole eggs.

Here's an illustrated meringue b/c recipe that combines IMBC (egg whites) and French MBC (yolks):

If you have access to an organic store, look for organic butter with no dyes. It's white! I find that icing whitener doesn't work quite as well on buttercream recipes with eggs. It lightens, but doesn't get it bright white.

you can also buy white butter i buy it from a cake supply store/and makes cakes, i just looked on buddy's site and that's not the recipe he posted, do you know which one is the right one, and is it really sweet, i don't like mine sweet like wilton's thanks all

I always add a touch of violet color to my icing and it goes white for me.

Does anyone ever worry about putting raw eggs in food that isn't cooked.

Dayti Posted 16 Aug 2010 , 10:10am

I've edited this because I didn't read the recipe before posting icon_redface.gif

I've had his cake before, and he definitely uses a shortening based icing. I think I might try this recipe tho! Thanks for posting!

Has anyone tried this buttercream recipe? and as for the sugar in the recipe, is that powdered sugar?
