Here's the best buttercream EVER !!!!
2 1/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup egg whites
6 sticks of butter
1 tsp vanilla...
put sugar into a saucepan with a lid and add water. Bring to a boil, once it comes to a boil, let it go on medium high for about 7 mins. Meanwhile, beat 1 cup egg whites til stiff with a whisk attachment, I think it takes about 5 mins. Once the sugar is done, pull it off the burner, wait about 30 secs til it stops bubbling, with the mixer going, slowly pour the sugar syrup to the side of the mixer bowl avoiding the whip. Let it whip for 10 mins til the bowl is cool to the touch, add 6 sticks of room temperature butter cut in small chunks and keep whipping til its all incorporated. At some point it may look curdled, keep going, it will come together. Once it's all together, add a tsp of vanilla and you're good to go!
Love this stuff. I have the recipe memorized
