I’ve never made a Swiss Meringue buttercream before so was a little nervous but it turned out great. Very delicious. I did cut the recipe in half because the recipe makes a ton and I prefer to taste the cake not just the frosting.
I made this to frost the Best Vanilla Cake as published in the April 2020 issue. The frosting came out beautifully and had a nice taste. The consistency and fluffiness reminded me of frosting from a bakery cake. I'm giving it 4 stars simply because it contains an overwhelming amount of butter. I see the online recipe says 40 servings, but in the magazine it was shown frosting a 16 serving cake, which is how I used it. It was just so rich that it was hard to finish one small slice and my family ended up leaving most of the frosting in their plates because it was just so rich.
This recipe was terrible. I made this along with the Best Vanilla Cake recipe. I followed the recipe exactly how it was written. It turned out like a thick liquid. I added powdered sugar to thicken it up so I could use it (which made it terribly sweet). I would not recommend making this.
