Making my own Buttercream

Made my own butter cream today! It's my first try actually.. learned it during the macaron class, this butter cream is rich and nice!

I got the recipe from Aunty Yochana, and I do half of the recipe.



200g sugar
30g water
140g egg whites
300g Butter
300g Magarine (I use marianne, from sunlik)

  1. Boil sugar and water till thick but flowy
  2. Whisk egg whites till fluffy, and pour in the hot syrup
  3. Continue whisking the egg whites till cooled
  4. Slowly add in the butter and magarine. Beat till thick and fluffy.

As I ran out of butter, so instead of using 150g of butter, I use only about 100g and top up the rest using magarine, it does not affect the taste much, except it's a wheeny bit salty.. I guess it must be due to the salted butter I'm using..

I have to made this in advance and store it in the fridge, this is to save myself from working extra hard on the 25th Dec as I will try to make macarons on that day!
