I also forgot to add, you want your sugar water/meringue to get foamy before turning up the speed.
this is very simillar to Italian buttercream that I always make. It is very good. thanks for sharing
fondantgrl, someone also posted that it was similar to your that you make in the post I made about this. Since I enjoyed this one, I will definately have to try yours!!
Does it crust?
Thank you so much for this recipe. I wanted to try an Italian Meringue Buttercream, but frankly I could not take chances that it would not come together. Yours involved no real cooking, so I thought I could handle it. And it is beautiful, delicious and light.
Does this need to be refrigerated once I fill the cake with it?
wow i tried this last weekend. followed the recipe exactly, no alterations and it was fantastic!!! what a hit, better than any other buttercream recipe i have tried in the past. a keeper recipe in my book!! thanks!!!
hi! need help... :) i live in very hot n humid weather n we dont have shortning n meringue powder available here. i have always been searching for a buttercream frosting recipie which will not melt but cant find one without these two ingredients... :( cud u plz suggest an alternative to these two ingredients.... thanks in advance...
How well did it worked for decorating? Does it need refrigeration? Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to try it!!
I want to know if it needs refrigeration too! Thanks!!
I'm new in the baking field but am trying to learn all I can. I have a hard time stomaching the idea of using shortening in any of my frostings.... does this firm up some JUST using butter and no shortening? Also, is this stiff enough to make buttercream roses? Any response would be great! Thank you :o)
Anybody out there have any input about if this needs refrigeration or not?
