    Followed the recipe to a tee, but the frosting had a VERY strong egg taste, yuck! Highly recommend that you try a different buttercream recipe!

    I was kind of worried because I didn't get it to 160 degrees, but the texture turned out fine. The only thing for me is that it tastes very strongly of butter and not it's not as sweet as i'd want it to be. Other than that, great frosting.

    Angelam - THANK YOU! with the help of your tips I just finished making the perfect buttercream! The key here is to whip it - a lot! But so yummy once its done!

    EPIC FAIL! I tried twice and it had the foamy texture but after I added the still cool butter it turned into curds and nothing I did could save it :(

    Brigitte- be sure that your sugar/egg white mixture has cooled enough before you add your soft but still cool butter. Also, that same mixture should resemble shaving cream (meringue) before you feed in the butter. Sometimes the mixture looks curdled because your butter is too cold...just keep on mixing if that's the case. If your butter melts(egg white/sugar mixture too hot) you really have to start over.
