Well my icing is a runny mess–but it tastes good. And do you think store in the fridge or room temp once iced? It’s worth a try though!! I will let you know how I go ! Have you had problems with it setting up well and then separating or melting after it’s applied to cake or cupcakes? Any idea why this is happening? I’ve made this frosting twice now, oreo cookie for cupcakes and recently for a tiered cake, both times it was softer than a more stable buttercream. Hey Chel! It sounds like it just really needs to chill a bit more. ? Haha i love hearing that!! Thank you Chelsea, I did forget to mention I made it with fresh raspberries and regardless of the butter taste it was delicious and very silky, That sounds incredible Maria!! . How long did you let your butter sit out before making the frosting? Sadly it doesn’t crust quite as firmly as american buttercream or royal icing, so I don’t think it would work well for stacking cookies :/, This recipe is mind blowing, I just made it along with box cupcakes. The flavor was a creamy, milky flavor. Who knew you could use sweetened condensed milk? I really want to perfect this recipe because it tastes so delicious! Mine turned out soft and goopy:/ I put it in the fridge for like 20 minutes and it’s still pretty soft. Hopefully we’ll be able to figure it out together!! I tried it and we loved it But my daughter said it tasted too much like butter, is it suppose to or what could have gone wrong? , I don’t know what happened to mine if I could upload a pic I would, best way to describe it is it is kinda lumpy? I’ve seen other Russian Buttercream recipes where they state the condensed milk needs to be cold. That’s a very valid concern!! Top with second cake layer, top side up. This Russian buttercream is made with just 4 ingredients!! Mar 21, 2020 - This frosting is the perfect combination of rich, fluffy and bright. Great questions! That is awesome, it really is such a delicious buttercream!! And it’s so amazing! Did not know it was called Russian. So happy to hear you love this recipe! To keep things simple, I suggest just making it the day of. i think it may be too soft for decorating though and i am in the Caribbean ! Hope that helps, happy baking!! Tried this today with cupcakes! It’s a nightmare!! I don’t think you did anything wrong! how would you make this into a chocolate flavor? It holds its shape at room temp, but I’m not so sure about really warm temps + humidity. Place the room temperature butter into a large mixing bowl and whip it on high until … But do you have a recommendation on a recipe that you may have or know of that isn’t very sweet? I’m sorry to hear you don’t love the taste, but I think half the battle of frosting is finding a recipe / type you love That’s awesome that you love italian meringue buttercream, it really is wonderful too!! Just some pointers for others butter is expensive don’t waste it! Hey Chelsea! That is wonderful I hope she loved it!!!
