SWISS BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:
INGREDIENTS:
Sugar: 1/2 cup
Egg Whites: 2 large egg whites
Softened margarine: 3/4 cup
Vanilla: 1/2 teaspoon

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Place a big metal bowl over a pot of simmering water. Immediately add the sugar followed by the egg whites.
2. Whisk together over the simmering water until you can’t feel the sugar grains when you rub the mixture between your fingers.
3. Transfer mixture into a stand mixer if desired or leave it in the bowl and and whip with an electric hand mixer until it turns white and about doubles in volume.
4. Blend in the vanilla.Add the butter in about 3 additions or so and continue to whip until the mixture gets thick and you think that it is thick enough to decorate with.

This buttercream does not get a crust on the surface and it stays fluffy even after sitting overnight (does not flatten). Because of the egg whites, you would need to refrigerate the decorated cakes/cupcakes after they are frosted. This frosting is light, creamy and wonderful. It is not sickly sweet like some other buttercream frosting.
