Swiss Meringue Buttercream Not Quite The Dream We'd Hoped!

12 perfect cupcakes ready to be decorated with silky, smooth, cloud like fluff that is Swiss Meringue Buttercream alas things did not go as planned!

We were aiming for a neat, domed finish in perfectly pastel shades. In reality we got flat, curdled but perfectly pastel shades.

Loving the colours and sprinkles but we think that buttercream is the way forward for our desired neat little humps!

Close up curdled goodness!

OK, so the cakes might not be as we'd hoped but who could complain about spending an hour or so in the kitchen covering everyone and everything in food colouring!

We'll be back tomorrow with today's success.

Off now to remove SMBC from hair!


  1. I agree - look deeelicious :) x

  2. Ooh yummy! I want cakes now!!

  3. I wonder why the pink looks perfect and the rest were curdled?
