I am amazed how delicious it turned out to be! I dont think im going back to regular buttercream now... Love to explore around the web and search different buttercream recipes, still have a lot to experiment.
The recipe is from Joshua John Russell, Modern Buttercream from Craftsy Class and here is his recipe which works wonderfully!
• 8 egg whites (about 1 cup)
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 6 sticks unsalted butter (3 cups),at room temperature
• 1 cup confectioner's sugar (sifted)
• Pinch salt
• 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Over a double boiler,heat the whites and granulated sugar and salt, whisking constantly, until all the sugar is dissolved. Heat this slowly!! You don't want scrambled eggsl
Place the mixture in a stand mixer and whip on high until a peak forms and the mixture is cool, about 5 minutes.
Turn the mixer to medium speed and add the softened butter a little at a time.Remember, depending on your area,you may need more or less butter.
Add the powdered sugar and vanilla and mix.
This will give more stability when the weather is hot.
