AI've been using " marshmallow buttercream" for some time now but I'm getting fed up with the fact that it doesn't taste like the one I've tasted before.

What buttercream recipes do you professional cake makers use?

I actually asked the girl I used to order cakes from and she said marshmallow but I just havn't found a recipe that tastes like hers.

Please help. I need a great recipe for this weekend

Thank you

AMarshmallow buttercream? I'm intrigued, can you tell me more?

AIt's basically 1/2 cup non salted butter 7oz fluff 3 cups icing sugar Vanilla extract

It's super simple and easy but It's not the one I'm looking for

AIs icing sugar the same as confectioners sugar? Fairly new to the cake decorating world.

Thanks, I'm definitely going to try this out.  Sounds tasty!

 

I realize you haven't gotten many answers to your original question either.  I'm not a professional, but personally I love the taste of SMBC.  I use these quantities and love the taste... haven't had anyone complain that it's too buttery tasting:

 

250g egg whites

454g sugar

225g salted butter

225g unsalted butter

2 tsp vanilla extract
