Beer Buttercream????

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Hi, first time posting! I'm new to cake decorating and baking and have been wanting to try different recipes. I was watching amazing wedding cakes earlier and a beer buttercream was mentioned. I was just wondering if anyone had any recipes, I couldn't find any in the recipes section otherwise I wouldn't be asking icon_smile.gif Also couldn't find many by googling!

Suggestions anyone?
thanks!

They give the recipe on the website for the show. I'm going to be trying it for my dad's cake next month since he loves Guinness. Don't forget to boil it down to reduce it - it will make all the difference in the flavor!

I have watched that show last year too! I am kind of a WE and Food Network
junkie, but I don't watch Bridezillas much. That show spoils the beauty that make up weddings.

I don't know why I didn't remember to go to the website. Anyway, thanks! And watch how much of that frosting you drink! icon_lol.gif

I just located this..Maybe it will help?

1/4 cups stout beer, at room temperature, divided
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (16-oz.) package powdered sugar

Beat softened butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar and 1/4 cup stout beer, beating until blended after each addition. Beat 1 minute or until light and fluffy

I was just on the site as well... am I missing it? There are only (5) recipes listed under the recipe section. Should I be looking in a different section? If someone has the recipe... can they post it or pm it?? Thanks.

There are a bunch of recipes if you search for guinness buttercream, here is one that i found.

Guinness Buttercream Frosting
Ingredients
2 Cup(s) Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
5 Cup(s) Sifted Powder Sugar
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Whole Scraped Vanilla Bean
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
2 Cup(s) Guinness Extra Stout
Steps
In a sauce pan, simmer Guinness on low heat for 10-15 min, until it stout becomes reduced and thicker in consistency. Similar to a syrup. *Tip: keep your eye on the store, so stout does not over cook. Let cool.
In a stand alone mixer, cream your butter for 1 minute
Slowly add the powder sugar in thirds, alternating with a little milk each time till mixture is creamy.
Add scraped vanilla bean and vanilla extract.
Slowly add reduced Guinness a little at a time. Taste test to desired flavor. You may not use all the Guinness reduction.

What flavor cake would you use this with? My friend is having a BBQ and I think her crowd would be best to try this out on icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks!

Laurie from the Cake Alchemy on Amazing Wedding Cakes always seems to use chocolate. I think that's what I'll try too.

It is just me or the amount of liquid sees like a LOT!?! Adding 2 1/2 plus 1 Tbsp of liquid to 1 batch of BC is too much!

What I do to my Beer BC is just replace the liquid the recipe calls for with reduced stout. Same amounts. I've also used Sam Adams, it is not as dark but just as good, little lighter in beer flavor.

I also use it with chocolate cake and brush my cake with some more reduced beer.

I wish I had seen this post earlier, but when it says stout beer, in one of the replies, what are some types of stout beer besides the guin kind? Would budweiser or any kind of Budweiser product be considered stout? I want to make this cake tomorrow and I just want the best outcome or product.
