When do you add flavoring and coloring to frosting?

Sweet Wise response: If you are adding a powder color with American Buttercream, you will add it when you add the powdered sugar. Gel color you can add after it is made. If you are working with a Swiss Meringue, you add color at the end.

Is it possible to achieve the same smooth, almost flawless coating for cakes with this frosting?

Sweet Wise Response: It is, as long as you are working with it while it's cold. Get it as smooth as you can while it is being applied, then refrigerate it. Bring it out and immediately smooth again with a palette or putty knife, or a bench scraper. Refrigerate again. Once it's good and cold, I bring it back out, and with CLEAN warm hands (I stay by the sink and use warm running water then shake the excess water off my hands), I gently rub out any knife marks. You have to do it while it cold though, and you may need to pop it back in the fridge if the icing starts to get warm. Good luck!

I didn't see if you answered someone that asked, should we use salted or unsalted butter? Thank you. Love your tutorials.

Sweet Wise response: I use Salted butter…everyone has different tastes though. Thanks SO much!

Hi Kathy

I have tried to make this buttercream and it seems it never stiffs up. Should I use unsalted butter instead of regular butter? And should I not whipped to long? What am I doing wrong?

Kimberly Young

Sweet Wise Response: A couple of things could be going on: Make sure you have whipped the meringue after it comes off the heat to COOL IT DOWN! It needs to come down to below 100 for sure, 95 degrees preferably. Make sure the butter is SOFT, but not oozy- if it is close to melting, you won't get a stiff buttercream. Last, you DO need to whip it for some time after you have added all the butter- if all the other steps have been followed, it should stiffen up after a minute or two.

Can you add fondant decorations on a cake that has been iced with Swiss Meringue BC or Whipped Icing?

Sweet Wise Response - Sure you can.

What number on the mixer do you consider medium high

Sweet Wise Response: Something around a 6 or 7 (out of 10) will work. All mixers, even within the same brand family, will act differently, but on my Kitchen Aid, I stay around a 6 or 7.

I like the video, but approximately how long does it take for the eggs and sugaar to become white or 160 degrees? Also how long should the mixer be on med high? thank you

Sweet Wise Response - I've never timed it, but I'm going to guess around 5 minutes or so. Keep the mixer on medium high until the temp drops back down- I like it around 90-95 degrees so it won't melt the butter, it just kind of "fluffs" it in. If it seems flat after you add the butter, just let it keep whipping. It will fluff back up.

Can you use a quilted impression mat on smb?

You will need to make sure your buttercream is nice and cold.
