Italian Meringue Buttercream Frosting Recipe
Looking to kick your homemade frosting skills up a notch and aren't scared of a little extra work? Well, our Italian Buttercream Frosting is just the ticket. This recipe makes a batch of buttercream that’s less sweet than an American buttercream and not quite as buttery-tasting as its French counterpart. It has a dainty taste and airy, rich texture which makes this Italian Meringue Buttercream an upscale option for both frosting and decorating everything from a simple 2-layer chocolate cake to an elaborate lemon wedding cake. Once this recipe becomes second nature, try adding some chocolate for another delicious flavor option.
