Royal Icing Buttercream

If you’re looking for a non-crusting buttercream recipe that is perfect for cakes and pastries, then look no further than Reva’s Royal Icing Buttercream. This unique recipe uses royal icing as its base and is perfect for those who are hesitant to use liquid pasteurized egg whites in their mock meringue buttercream.

To make Reva’s Royal Icing Buttercream, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 5 Tbs meringue powder
  • 2lbs powder sugar/confectioners sugar
  • 3/4 to 1 cup of water (3/4 for humid areas/1 cup for dry areas)
  • 2 TBS vanilla (use clear vanilla if you want a lighter buttercream color)
  • 4 lbs of butter (room temp, make 4oz of it salted butter or add salt to your taste preferences)

To begin, create your royal icing by mixing together the meringue powder, confectioners sugar, and water in a mixing bowl. Beat the mixture until it becomes light and fluffy. Add in your vanilla and continue to mix until well combined.

Next, add in your room temperature butter, making sure that 4 oz of it is salted butter (or add salt to your taste preferences). Beat the mixture until it becomes smooth and silky.

Once your royal icing buttercream is ready, you can use it to decorate cakes or pastries as desired. The buttercream is non-crusting, meaning that it will not form a hard crust on the surface of your baked goods, making it perfect for those who prefer a softer texture.
