Making SMBC... - Page 4

Meringue powder has more than just eggs in it.. it has cream of tartar and gums and all sorts of stuff.. I'd stay away from it. I don't know about the powdered whites.. never used them for anything. I'd just stick with regular egg whites.. it's a sure bet and it's easy to do AND you have leftover yolks to make yummy things like lemond curd and pastry cream! icon_wink.gif

Also, be sure to REALLY clean your mixer bowl as trace fats can impede the formation of your meringue. icon_smile.gif

I use powdered egg whites all the time. I buy them in bulk and they work great!

Have you ever made it both ways and tasted them? Do they taste the same? Buying powdered egg whites would make things easier.. but only if there's no difference in taste. icon_smile.gif

Thank you both for your help. I am just so tickled that I can make this now even with one failed attempt!



I whip mine for like 10 minutes after its heated.. I also make sure the sugar is melted.. I actually stick my finger in the mix and rub my finger together, if I feel no grains, I take it off..

Ooooh.. never toss it.. freeze it!! It keeps for at least 3 months in the freezer.

Giving it to g-ma is always a good option too though.. icon_wink.gif

Hi Everyone!

Quick question about the SMBC... if I use it as a filling for cupcakes, do the cupcakes need to be refrigerated?? icon_confused.gif

Thanks!!

I am DYING to try this recipe!! Does SMBC & IMBC take color like regular buttercream? What do you do if you need bright colored frosting??

I will take gell colors okay, but candy colors work better. Gel colors are water based and they don't mix in all the way, but candy colors are oil based and they mix in perfectly. You can get it moderately bright, but too much color will effect the taste. If I need bright colors I use fondant.

If your cupcakes are going to be out for a day or two then no.. don't worry about chilling them, but beyond that I would. Cuppies never last that long anyway.. icon_lol.gif

To freeze it I lay out a piece of plastic wrap and plop the SMBC on that and wrap it up. Then wrap it again and place it in a zipper bag and put it in the freezer. When you want to use it again, place it on the counter and let it get to room temp, or you can microwave it for 10 second intervals until it thaws. If you whip it up and it's a little cold it will separate and look REALLY nasty, but if you warm it up a bit and keep whipping.. it will come back together. icon_smile.gif
