my buttercream is a mess!!! - Page 2

post #31 of 32

This worked beautifully! My buttercream is even more beautiful than when i originally made it! This is from one of the posts above: 

 

Italian Buttercream is a simple "water and fat emulsion". Sometimes the emulsion breaks, resulting in a buttercream that looks broken and curdled. However, it is very easy to fix.
First, if the buttercream is cold and broken, separately melt about 25% of the mixture, return it to the remainder and then rewhip -- it should come right together.

This worked great for me:

1. In a microwave safe bowl, melt your butter cream on HIGH for 1:30.

2. Put your melted butter cream in a glass bowl.(ceramic works too)

3. Take a large bowl and fill it with ice and water about 2/3 of the way.

4. Place your glass bowl into the ice bath, and mix for 1 minute gently with a spoon.

5. Let the butter cream sit in the ice bath for about 30 minutes depending on your desired consistency.

6. Using an electric whisk gently beat the icing, and let sit for 10 minutes.

7. Begin icing!
