Today, it was getting up to make a batch of Swiss meringue buttercream. (Dorie's recipe from BFMHTY.) I've made it so many times now, I could practically do it in my sleep. =) It helps that I had leftover egg whites in my fridge. I made the cupcakes last night--the Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes from Cook's Illustrated, minus the ganache filling--and this way they had plenty of time to cool completely. B surprised me by saying that if she had to pick just one frosting flavor, it would be vanilla. (She originally wanted me to do a chocolate/vanilla swirl.) She picked the wrappers, and we decided pink edible glitter would coordinate nicely.
It's so fluffy!!!
