I’m always up for a challenge, but I don’t know what I was thinking with this frosting recipe. I started making it and was too far along when I realized I needed not only one pound of butter, but two ( I think I read 8 tablespoons when it was really 8 sticks of butter).
Lets start from the beginning… My littlest is turning three next week and tomorrow is one of a couple events that I thought I would offer cupcakes to celebrate her. I have cake and frosting recipes that I have tried, but none that I love. So I fell right into Martha Stewart’s trap of yummy sounding pastry recipes. I couldn’t resist “Swiss Meringue Buttercream” as if I was making a wedding cake for adults and not cupcakes for two and three year olds. It is very delicious, I hope it freezes well.
