Recipe by C. Taylor
From Country Living magazing. This looks like a beautifully glossy and light buttercream. I haven't tried this yet, but wanted to put this here for safe keeping.

I agree with another poster that it was very buttery tasting. I love butter, but it almost tasted too bland. I even doubled up on the vanilla. It is silky smooth and looks beautiful. I will try it again, but with a little less butter.
Directions See How It's Made
- Continuously whisk egg whites and sugar in a large, heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water until the mixture is frothy, thick, and very hot to the touch (about 160 degrees F).
- Remove from heat and beat with a mixer on high speed. The mixture should then become cool and glossy and triple in volume.
- Beat in the butter, cut into 1/2 inch cubes, a few pieces at a time.
- Add the vanilla and beat until fluffy.
