Chef's Quick Tip: Buttercream Cake

This week, Pastry Chef Michelle Klem from CakeSuite in Westport shows Tina Redwine how to make a Buttercream Cake.  If you have any questions, please email
1 cup egg whites
2 cup sugar
1 1/2 pound butter, room temp.
1 tablespoon vanilla
Whip on medium/high for 5-10 minutes, until the mixture holds stiff peaks (similar to Fluff).
Add butter and mix until incorporated. Add flavoring or add-in of your choice. Freeze or chill, if desired, or use immediately.
Buttercream should be quite soft to achieve a smooth finish.  Microwave for a few seconds to soften slightly.
