I'm trying to make the White flower cake shoppe signature flower and I already know the BC has to be stiff should I use American? I normally only work with SM but i don't think that could ever be stiff enough to pipe a flower  is there a recipe for stiffer Swiss meringue?56a4a9e853bca.jpeg

They use American buttercream if I remember correctly. You can add confectioner's sugar to meringue buttercreams to stiffen it up, but then it won't be a meringue buttercream anymore.

When one of the co-owners, Marianne, was on here last year, she said they use a smbc that they've "perfected over the years".  So, they may have added powdered sugar or something like costumeczar suggested.  I don't know if they give out that recipe in any of their paid tutorials. 

She also said they use Ateco 402 and 403 tips.
