Recipe's preparation

    Instructions
  1. This recipe is quite foolproof and very forgiving. So long as you ge the meringue right.  For this it is essential to have both the bowl and the butterfly perfectly clean and dry. 

     

    Put the butterfy into place and add egg whites, sugar and salt.  Whip 5 minutes 60 degrees, speed 3

     

    Once finished beat again 6 minutes speed 3.5  (no temperature) After this step you have swiss meringue.

     

    Keep the machine running at speed 3.5 and start adding the butter cubes little by little.  This will take about 4-5 minutes.   When you first start adding the mixture will deflate completely. Just keep adding and beating.  If at one point it looks curdled, it means the butter wasnt cold enough.  Put the bowl in the fridge for a few minutes and then go on beating.

     

    When all the butter is combined beat for a further 1 minute.

     

    At this point you may add flavouring and colour. ie  cocoa, lemon curd, jam,  fruit puree, colours etc, add and beat in for 30 seconds on 3.5

     

    This can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 weeks, or frozen and then bought back to life.  Before using , just whip it up, straight from the fridge with the butterfly 3.5 speed,  If frozen stand in fridge for 24 hours before whipping.

    I halved the mixture and after 10 mins of combining and whipping with the butter it’s runny. Is this normal? Can I save it?

    AMAZING!!! Especially for a totally novice cake decorator like me!
    This was lovely to work with, less sweet and made plenty for what I needed.

    I was a little daunted and mine took a little longer to combine but it turned out perfectly.

    I'll be making this again for sure!!!
