I just made the one bowl version of the Whipped Cream Buttercream and I LOVE IT!!! I've always made a meringue buttercream, not IMBC or SMBC, just an all shortening bc that has a meringue folded into it and it's almost identical!!! It tastes the same and has the same texture and took me a LOT less time to make!!...I folded crushed Oreos in some of it for the filling!....It's light and fluffy and not too sweet!! No greasy feeling either!
Has anyone who's made this, doubled the recipe? or should I just make 2 batches
I'd love to try it....where could I find the recipe? I tried to look in the recipe section here, but I don't think it was there.
i want to try it too...where is the recipe posted?
yeah i would like the recipe too.
I've did this recipe both way and I like the two part recipe better, for some reason the results were a little different.
Thanks a bunch!!
I also dissolve my white sugar and salt in the hot water before adding the meringue, no grit in the frosting that way.
I made a double when I made it. It definatly filled my 5 qt KA and made a mess, but it made a mess in the general sence, it didn't overfill the bowl, but it filled it. I decided then that I would make 2 singles from now on, but if you have a KA bigger than 5 qt, I would go for it. I agree, this BC is GREAT. The taste is SO much lighter and better than the traditional BC. This will be my recipe from now on. It even pipes well, but it is too soft for roses. Idefinatly thank whoever posted it first.
One bowl or two. o well either way it's a frosting my kids and hubby will eat. LOL!!!
Mmmm.....sounds good. I'll have to try it.
Sue, it that the one bowl or the two bowl? I thought you used the two bowl for the roses. If ti was the one bowl, than the extra merange must make the difference because my roses wilted. LOL. I will try it again next time with the extra merange and try the roses again. Thanks.
I do the two bowl recipe.
ugh, I musta done somethin' wrong...I tried makin' it and I guess I need some practice er somethin'...it wasn't all that great...for me anyways...
You can do roses with this frosting, I put three tbs of meringue in mine. I think I make better roses with this frosting. I will post pictures of a two cake with this frosting.. Look at my roses. Will use this recipe as my all time fav.
your cakes are so beautiful and your roses are absolutely perfect!...I think I'll have to try the 2 bowl version to see what's different about it.
I can't find the one bowl recipe. I've used the 2 bowl and loved it. Used some today as a filling and mixed in some cocoa powder for a yummy chocolate flavor. I had no idea you could pipe with it, though. I know I added a lot of meringue to mine but it was so fluffy. Hmmmm...if you look in my photos the one with the pink flowers was the 2 bowl. See how fluffy it is?
Thank you on the nice comment on the roses. Don't for get 3 tbs of meringue power.
Yes it's light and fluffy but you can pipe with it.
Can you substitute butter for any of the crisco? I really want to try this recipe.
I don't know how it would turn out if you substituted some butter for some of Crisco. If anyone tries let me know.
You can also use the viva on the top after it sits. Just go very lightly, I use a fondant smoother on top of the viva. The sides are very easy to smooth with any straight edge tool.
Wow, I can't believe it gets that smooth. That's fantastic b/c I have a customer who wanted whipped cream but I didn't think I'd be able to get it smooth enough to write on it.
sue, you used a one bowl recipe, right? is in on this site?
This is the recipe I use the two part one, but I put 3 tbs of meringue power in mine.
maybe a stupid question...but do you put just 3 Tps of meringue? or do you add 3 additional Tps?
only 3 tbs.
Hmmmm...I put 3 tbs. in, too, but it definitely didn't crust.
It crust only slightly, just enough to use the viva. You don't think it is but there is a light crust. Go very easy only on the top.
I'll give it a shot! Thanks!
