Butter cream frosting
  • Rosettes cake using SMBC 
  • SMBC recipe (1x : for piping rosettes only for 7" cake) 
  • 100g Egg Whites (3 eggs Grade A) 
  • 135g Caster Sugar 
  • 225g Unsalted Butter - cut to mid size chunks and softened to room temp 
  • Cream of Tartar (a pinch) 
  • Method 
  • 1) Whisk together egg whites and sugar over hot water bath. Make sure all the sugar has melted. 
  • 2) Transfer to mixer bowl with whisk attachment. Add a pinch of cream of Tartar. Start whisking until stiff peaks. 
  • 3) Start adding chunks of butter. 
  • 4) Whisk until smooth consistency. 
  • Note : keep SMBC at room temp. Can last for 1 week. 
  • Tip 
  • 1) Re-whip using paddle attachment before frosting. 
  • 2) Whip at low speed (setting #1) on the Kitchen Aid mixer to rid off air pockets. 
  • 3) For white SMBC, add a tiny drop of purple gel coloring. The BC will turn white ! I kid you not !
