Swiss Meringue Buttercream

I found this recipe on Dyann's page. I had never tried a butter cream with this technique. The instructions were simple, so I went along with it. This was a very different frosting from what is mostly used on cakes. The texture was really smooth, with a buttery flavor. I would say that it tasted almost like fresh cream in a frosting kinda way....!!! I will definitely make this again.
I mentioned to my hubby that I had tried a new recipe for butter cream, and so of course he recommends that I make some cupcakes to go along with it, so that he could be a taste tester...LOL!!! I made some pineapple cupcakes with fresh pineapple mixed in, and also flavored the butter cream with coconut extract....yummmyy....pina colada!!
