Perfect Swiss Meringue

This silky-smooth Swiss Meringue tastes like the best homemade marshmallows in soft spreadable form.  It is totally delectable on top of your favorite cake or cupcakes.

Meringue sometimes brings with it, a bad reputation, and I believe that’s because so many people think of meringue in one form only…that the high piled meringue on top of a Lemon Meringue Pie.  I have found, especially with the younger generation, that whipped cream is favored over meringue on top of pies.  With that being said, that is not the only way to eat meringue.  There are actually three types of meringue, Swiss, French and Italian, and each of them can be made into different delectable sweets and desserts.

Today, we’ll talk about Swiss Meringue.  By itself, it tastes like the most delicious homemade marshmallow cream and when added to real butter and sugar, it becomes a delectable Swiss Meringue Buttercream. Therefore, if you’re not fond of the taste of marshmallow cream, you might actually love Swiss Meringue Buttercream. All I’m saying is please don’t be so quick to be a meringue snubber!!

Don’t be intimidated by Swiss Meringue, or any meringue for that matter.  It is so easy to make.  All you do to make this easy meringue is add egg whites, cream of tartar, salt and sugar to a heatproof bowl.
