Marshmallows and buttercream together? So yum!
This recipe comes about as a lead up to a fabulous cake . . . this recipe, plus the one for marshmallow fluff together equal a fabulous SURPRISE inside cake. We will have the great, fabulous, so adorable, wonderful cake ready to be released on Saturday morning. Here’s a hint: there are marshmallows involved.
I think that this icing would be delicious on a S’mores cupcake (which I’m definitely going to make now that I’ve thought of it!) You could scorch the top of and make it TOASTED marshmallow buttercream! Oh my god, I’m dying!
There is definitely a lot of butter in this recipe, which obviously means it’s going to taste great and be horrible for your waistline, but it makes a smooth and creamy buttercream.
I must know . . . how would YOU use this buttercream?
When learning how to bake, colouring buttercream/frosting/icing (whatever you want to call it . . . I just call it deliciousness) can be one of those things that seems simple, but a little extra instruction can never hurt.
The most important tip I give anyone starting out, is to invest in the Gel Pastes! The Supermarket run of the mill food colouring dyes will not cut it and you will be left with dull or oddly coloured icing.
The second most important tip I can give you is to add the dye in small amounts until you reach the desired colour/shade.
I have been using Americolor Gels for the last year and love them! Get yourself some of those and you’re set.
