How to Make Swiss Buttercream (Best BC EVER) Bebita

Step-by-Step

  1. Over a double boiler, heat the egg whites and granulated sugar and salt, whisking constantly, until sugar has dissolved. (I myself use my hand to feel the egg whites, temp and that sugar has dissolved)THIS STEP IS CRUCIAL
  2. Place the mixture in a stand mixer and whip on high until a peak forms (merengue)and the mixture is cool, about 5 minutes.
    NOTE I use my stand mixture bowl as a double boiler
  3. Turn the mixture to low add vanilla and confectioners sugar, as soon as it is all incorporated add the butter and shortening, mix on high just until it all incorporates. DO NOT OVER MIX
    Vuala your Swiss buttercream is ready and delicious!
  4. TIP: In warmer climates or season you will need to change the amount of butter to less butter and adding shortening. This recipe can also be made with NO shortening, either way it is delicious. I GUARANTEE IT!
