This was the very first recipe I have ever used Swiss Meringue Buttercream with. I have no idea why I never tried it sooner. I always just defaulted to the quick and easy regular buttercream recipes. It’s been about a year since I last made regular buttercream because I love the Swiss Meringue so much more!! It really takes the cupcake up a notch, and it’s truly not that hard. I strongly suggest you give it a try.
