Hi! =) Today I woke up super early ...showered..did dishes and had some coffee...I am now ready to begin my day. =)
I received an email asking about SMBC [Swiss Meringue Buttercream] I promised I would answer...so I will use this blog to do so;) While all the craze now is SMBC I have found through trial and error that sometimes you will want to experiment with it for different uses....it is great on a cupcake...and as filling...it has a creamier more buttery texture than traditional buttercream though both can be modified accordingly. =) SMBC is simply in my humble opinion ... YUMMIER. And the clean up is half of what you do for regular buttercream=) . Here is the recipe:
- 5 BIG egg whites
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 lb (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temp
- 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract(or whatever flavor you want!)
I have a feeling that once you try it you will be wondering why you hadn't sooner! I did. Besides you don't get a film of dusty powdered sugar everywhere! =) If you have never tried it before TRY IT TODAY! You should be able to get the ingredients together without a trip to the store....but even a trip to the store is worth it! =) Have a SWEET day!
