Let’s Review the February Baking Challenge
February Baking Challenge: Swiss Meringue Buttercream
You took this challenge recipe and ran with it! Hundreds of you faced your fears of making Swiss meringue buttercream from scratch, a recipe many are too intimidated to try. And, simultaneously, this was the first time some of you used piping tips! That alone deserves a HUGE pat on the back. From cupcakes and cakes to macaron and whoopie pie filling, this Swiss meringue buttercream made its round in your kitchens. ♥
There are so many factors that could go wrong when making meringue buttercream and with my lengthy in-depth tutorial, each of you persevered. You can make Swiss meringue buttercream for life now. PLEASE BE PROUD!
One of my favorite comments came from reader Jamie:
“YUM! This recipe challenge intimidated me. Your tips and tricks were easy to follow, and led to a great success! I subbed out one teaspoon vanilla for espresso powder and added the melted chocolate for a “mocha” flavor. New favorite frosting, for sure. Thank you, Sally, you’re an awesome teacher!”
Giveaway winner for February is Kristina and she has been notified. 🙂
