I have had a request for a strawberry "whipped" frosting. They don't like the sweetness of buttercream. Does anyone have a good recipe for me? It needs to pair with chocolate cake and strawberry mousse for the filling. I need to be able to decorate a 2D ferrari cut out of a sheet cake, so it can't be too soft. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
Hi, you would love swiss meringue or italian meringue buttercream with strawberry puree or strawberry spread or jam mixed in the end. You would love Mike Mccarry's buttercream icing also. I think you can google that. If not i will help you out.
Hi, here is Mike's buttercream recipe. I used it when i made my red truck in my picks. Very good tasting.
hmmmmmm, where is the recipe? thanks for your help.
Sorry, just seen this.
1 lb. 4 0z. powder sugar, 1/2 c. pasteurized egg whites... 2 Tlbs.vanilla... 2 lbs. (8 sticks butter softened) In an electric mixer, combine sugar, egg whites and vanilla. Mix on low to combine. Increase speed to high and mix for 10 min. to build volume. Reduce speed to medium, slowly add softened butter and beat an additional 10 min. until full volume is reached. hth Then you add strawberry puree or nice jar of strawberry spread or jam. Delicious.
Wow! That seems like a lot of butter for that much powdered sugar. Can you decorate with it? Does it have an overwhelming buttery taste? Thanks again!
