I've always wanted to try out Swiss meringue buttercream (SMBC) but the fear of failing always puts me off. The method sounds complicated and I don't know anyone that's made it to give me advice.
What made me try this for the first time, it's because my son's birthday party was coming up, he wanted a Spiderman cake. The party is held at a soft play center and the cake would be left out for 2 hours. Ok, so cream cake is definitely a no no!
But I dislike buttercream as its too sweet.
So I had only one choice and that is SMBC!
So, I googled Swiss meringue buttercream, there's like a million recipe but which one should I try?
I follow Sweetapolita and I love her site, I remember seeing a SMBC she's made for a ruffle cake and I decide to try her version. I have made 1/3 of the recipe to try it out, after a successful attempt I made more!
Surprisingly, it's not difficult to make and it is smooth and very fluffy!
