Meringue Buttercream Frosting - 1st Generation
3 mins (cooking 3)
4 ingredients
24 servings
Sophmore year of highschool I jobshadowed a pastry chef, and she told me that the best icing to use for cake is meringe buttercream. So I went online, found a cute little blog that told me all the steps in detail. mmhmhmm. Makes very fluffy frosting, great for decorating! Has a great texture, but unfortunately, it's VERY fattening because of all the butter, and also it has a pretty prominent butter flavor. That's my disclaimer. But don't be discouraged! When I discovered this recipe, I never went back to regular buttercream. Anyway, I'm working on a less fattening version involving gelatin. So check back!
