DIRECTIONS

  • 1. Make the cake layers, following the instructions for the whipped cream cake.
  • 2. While the cake is cooling, make the frosting in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, whisk the sugar and egg whites for 3 minutes. The mixture will look like shiny marshmallow cream. Remove from the heat.
  • 3. Using a handheld mixer on medium speed, beat until the meringue has cooled, about five minutes.
  • 4. Add the butter pats, a third at a time, beating until smooth.
  • 5. Beat the buttercream on medium-high speed for 6 to 10 minutes, until it is thick and very smooth. If the buttercream curdles or separates, just keep beating. It will come together.
  • 6. Lower the speed to medium and gradually beat in the lemon juice, then the vanilla extract and honey. You should have a smooth buttercream. Cover tightly with plastic and set aside.
