I have been asked why I use buttercream on my products. My buttercream is a Swiss meringue buttercream. It is meringue based (cooked egg white and cooked-out sugar over a double boiler, then whipped butter is added to form a base. Vanilla is added and so is Whittaker’s white chocolate. This is the buttercream that I use on my cupcakes and cakes.
Traditional icing is made from icing sugar and water. The problem with icing sugar is that it has a grainy taste. A Swiss meringue buttercream cooks the sugar out, so you get a smooth taste, without the graininess that icing sugar would bring.
Real buttercream produces a better, smoother taste, and this is why we use instead of the traditional icing sugar technique that most bakers use.
