I tried doing a search but I am not finding a good answer, or I am not looking in the right place which is entirely possible.
Does anyone have a good recipe for white chocolate buttercream? I know that Wilton has their recipe but I am not generally a fan of their buttercreams with the exception of the Extra Special recipe. I tend to prefer lighter butercreams with little to no shortening flavor if someone knows of something like that.
I am making a 3 layer, neapolitan cake for my daughter's birthday and white chocolate buttercream has just stuck in my head as a great complement to the strawberry, chocolate and vanilla flavors.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
I adapted this from Toba Garrett's buttercream recipe.
2 cups butter, room temp
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
3 lbs confectioners sugar
1/2 cup white choc flavored non-dairy creamer
18 oz real white choc (not chips)
3 tbsp meringue powder
Melt creamer and chocolate together, then cool to room temp.
Cream butter and shortening until completely smooth.
Add flavoring and salt.
Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time.
Add meringue powder.
Add chocolate mixture and beat until smooth.
you can also add cooled ,melted ,white chocolate to smbc and imbc.. hth
