Now, what does one do as one waits ( it is 11:30 PM) for two huge pots to simmer for TWO whole HOURS? Do the math...pillow after 2:30 AM....
And as a plus, we are having guests over tomorrow. Even better to share!
Vanilla box mix with my homemade swiss meringue buttercream and strawberries. Mmmm! You don't have to make everything from scratch.
There are so many recipes out there for swiss meringue buttercream SMB. Find one that you can follow... like my fav:
Love this video, she makes it SoOo easy!
For the strawberry puree, just put a handfull of washed, sliced berries in a bowl, sprinkle with sugar to taste and when they begin to make their own syrup throw in a blender and pulse a few times until you have a puree. If you have lots of syrup, just hold back some of the liquid. When the SMB is finished, drizzle the puree in the bowl and mix until you have the desired strawberriness. Could that be a new word? Frost the cake and enjoy! We did!!!
