What is a Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Important please read, this method is for Butter no dairy free butter or spreads, if you wish to use dairy free butter or spreads please read instructions further down.

Swiss meringue buttercream is made from cooked egg whites and sugar, butter, and flavorings like vanilla and salt. Whip the cooked egg whites and sugar into stiff peaks, then slowly add the butter before adding flavors. It’s out-of-this-world creamy, extra smooth, and the perfect sweetness for any confection. However, our delicious version is made in powdered form.

Swiss meringue buttercream is ok to be left out for hours and hours. After about 8 hours it can get spongy though and lose it’s smoothness so it’s best to refrigerate if youre not going to use it and then re-whip it. Cakes that are frosted in Swiss meringue buttercream can be left at room temperature for two days!

How long does Swiss meringue buttercream last? It will last for a day or two at room temperature, 2 weeks in the fridge, and 3 months in the freezer. Be sure it is properly stored in an airtight container or a freezer bag.

Can I freeze Swiss Meringue Buttercream? Can I make Swiss meringue buttercream in advance? Yes! You can leave it at room temperature for a day or two, refrigerate for up to two weeks, or freeze it for up to 3 months. Be sure to store it in an airtight container.
