I tried! I can't
I tried making this recipe; I thought I could do it (since, as I stated below, my boifriend pulled it off without a hitch). My result was grainy and separated; the same outcome I get every time I try to make a cooked buttercream, as opposed to the smooth, creamy goodness it ought to be. Any ideas of what I am doing wrong??
Thanks for your help. I will master the cooked buttercream yet! argh!
you've done it again, Mattie
Nice job yet again, Mattie!! My ladypal just baked me some cupcakes last night using this icing. She is a vegan baking novice and pulled it off without a hitch (nor a candy thermometer)!
Though great, I found this recipe to be a bit sweet for my tastes. I am wondering what you might recommend if I wanted to cut down on sugar? Not sure it would still be structurally sound if I reduced the sugar or not. I've tried cooked (vegan) buttercreams made with tapioca or corn starch before but they always turned out like watery slop (though I may have overcooked the starch...who knows). Anyway, any advice is much appreciated!
Thank you so much and keep up the good work!!!!
