Let’s Review the February Baking Challenge
February 2020 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: 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, but each of you persevered. You can make Swiss meringue buttercream for life now. PLEASE BE PROUD!
One of my favorite recipe reviews 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!”
Challenge winner for February is Kristina and she has been notified. 🙂
