Vanilla Buttercream

Vanilla Buttercream - Smørcreme

Frostings & FillingsTove Balle-PedersenComment

This vanilla buttercream is great as frosting, or as a crumb coating before decoration a layered cake. 


  • 2 tablespoons pasteurized egg whites
  • 100 g confectionary sugar
  • 150 g butter, salted and room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and whip the buttercream until thick and fluffy over a double boiler. I used a saucepan with very hot water, and placed my bowl on top of that. I didn't have it on the stove. It takes some time to get the buttercream nice and fluffy.
