I've been doing a lot of cupcakes lately it seems! These are strawberry cupcakes with strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream. I've been wanting to try out a strawberry cake for ages and it was good to be able to do so before fresh strawberries become hard to find! The cupcakes I've done lately have allowed me to work on improving new techniques - the Swiss meringue
buttercream on these cupcakes took two attempts but the taste is well worth the extra effort!
Buttercream done with egg whites (either Swiss or Italian) is definitely a
better product! I may never use icing sugar again!
This blog will follow my adventures with cake, pastry and all things sweet!
