Italian meringue buttercream. I’m not sure that anything else could ever achieve the same rich decadence as this velvety icing. Have you tried it? I’m not talking about buttercream made from whipping butter and confectioners sugar together. No, I’m referring to the gorgeous frosting that is made by adding hot sugar syrup to whipped egg whites before butter is added. It’s outstanding and I highly recommend giving it a try. You know what makes Italian meringue buttercream even better? Rum and eggnog. And how about if we take this eggnog rum buttercream and roll it up inside a delicate, fluffy eggnog cake? Yup, you need this dessert. Please visit SheKnows to get my recipe for Eggnog Roulade with Rum Buttercream!
