This looked beautiful when I was making it...then I tasted it. EWWW!!! It tasted like pure butter. I added a bunch more sugar trying to make it edible. Very disappointing.
This was incredibly buttery tasting (well, duh, it has a pound of butter in it). Very smooth, very spreadable. This is one of the oh so many items I used for my daughter's first birthday cake. This particular buttercream topped a white cake recipe from Collete Peters and a lemon cake filling. Very nice. The only reason I don't give this 5 stars is the butter flavor is simply over the top.
this is the best buttercream recipe i have ever made. i've made it several times and i've loved it every single time.
This is absolutely the BEST buttercream i've ever tasted!! I love this! I made only 1/4 of the recipe and used it to fill a 2 layer chocolate cake. Oh how i regretted that decision... the texture was wonderful, so soft, smooth and velvety - it just melt on your tongue. I used coconut extract to flavor it. Usually i hate buttercream (too greasy!) but this, oh THIS.. is unbeatable! It holds up wonderfully in warm Singapore weather. And Mean Chef's instructions are clear - just follow it to the 'T' and you won't have any problems. I'm still swooning after one taste of the finished cake....
oh my goodness!!! It was my first time doing a stovetop frosting...and man was this good. Followed the directions SPECIFICALLY, didn't change a thing. Meanie you have done it again! :)
Oh My.... MMMMMMMMMM, ooooooooooo, put some of that in a bowl for me! These are the comments I got from my DH when he sampled the finished product. You really need to try this next time you have a cake to frost. The frosting comes together right at the end when you are adding the butter.
