Choosing the Best Buttercream Recipe

Choosing the best buttercream recipe

SO many buttercream recipes but which one to pick?

Choosing the best buttercream recipe for you and your cake projects can be daunting for some people while others will say “I only use this recipe. Period.”

For me I have always used three recipes and will go back and forth between those three depending on what I am making and for who I am making it for.

When I owned my bakery it was always determined by what the customer wanted for special order cakes, but when it came to making the cakes for the retail end of my store it was a well thought out process.

Here you can check out each of my individual recipes to see the process for yourself and decide which you like best as the taste, well rather the sweetness and textures will differ slightly.

Aquafaba Swiss Buttercream Recipe

Below is my original post from 2 years ago when I first showed you how to make Vegan Aquafaba Swiss Buttercream and now I have updated the video with another more in depth tutorial which is (in my opinion better) but it may be helpful to watch both versions.

The first video here includes a bonus tip on what to do when your buttercream “breaks” or curdles into that horrific mess and most people throw it out in disgust at that point, but wait!
I show you how to come back from that with tips on how to avoid it altogether so be sure to check it out!

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Chocolate Mousse Cake

When I made this Chocolate Mousse Cake originally it was ALL CHOCOLATE of course!

But something is happening to me in my old age (well…lots of things are happening to me, but let’s not even go there!)

My tastes are changing and I am branching out to include vanilla in some of my dessert choices!

Let me just say I am so happy I did!

The combination of this yellow cake with the chocolate mousse and ganache is out of this world!

Where to buy bakery boxes

Where to buy bakery boxes

As many of you may or may not know, I owned a bakery for close to 10 years; one of the most asked questions I get  is “Where can I buy boxes!?”

I never really had this problem since I was able to find everything I needed for my bakery delivered right to my door weekly.

Ah the perks of bakery ownership!

But once I sold my bakery several years ago I found myself in the same boat as you!
