If you’re looking for a frosting that doesn’t harden and stays satiny smooth then swiss meringue buttercream might be for you. It’s not very sweet and it’s VERY buttery so it might be more appropriate for those people who scrape the frosting off their cupcake just to eat the cake (yes there are people who do that, they are usually old). I tried this out on both my grandparents and my parents who are all guilty of the discarded frosting offence and they all loved it.
So it begins… After a long time of ‘no, I don’t have time for this’ or ‘it’s effort to keep updated’, I have decided to stop procrastinating and start blogging. I guess now is as good a time as any to express my thanks to everyone who has encouraged me to start and shown genuine interest in my recipes and methods. I hope you find my blog useful. For anyone else, here’s some background info; I’m 20 years old and a law student at uni. I spend my free time in the gym or baking and frankly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. In the kitchen, I like to experiment and try new things but sometimes it doesn’t work, and I’m okay with that. It usually just requires a few tweaks here and there and bob’s your uncle it works perfectly. I’ll be sure to include any mishaps and mess ups, complete with instructions on how to fix it if it all goes hideously wrong!
