The simplest cupcakes ^^ that many people can't say no, and I think I won't have enough recipes of it. Because each time that I want to make it I try make it better (or awful, haha).

Italian Meringue Buttercream

Italian Meringue Buttercream

75 g
Egg Whites
140 g
Sugar
1/8 cup
Water
225 g
Unsalted butter


To make the sugar syrup, place the candy thermometer in the saucepan and heat the water and 120 g of sugar over medium-high heat. Partially cover with a lid to capture the evaporating water this helps to moisten the sides of the saucepan to prevent sugar crystals from forming.
With the mixer on high speed, begin whipping the egg whites to stiff peaks. When the peaks are stiff, with the mixer still running slowly pour the remaining sugar into the meringue.
Raise the heat under the sugar syrup to bring the syrup to 245°F, if it is not there already. When the syrup is at 245°F, remove the thermometer and slowly pour the syrup into the meringue.
After 1 to 2 minutes reduce the mixer speed to medium for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the meringue is cooled. Add the butter 1 tablespoon at a time. Increase the mixer speed to high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the butter is fully incorporated.

Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Many people ask me about the Swiss meringue buttercream ^^, so this is the one.
The difference between the Italian meringue is how you cook the egg white with the sugar, for this one you will stir them together over the simmering water until the sugar melt.

1.Stir the egg whites, sugar, and corn syrup in a bowl set over simmering water, until the instant read thermometer register 45°C  or about 3-4 minutes (you will see that most of the sugar melted).
Take out of the pan and whip with the hand mixer at high speed for 10 minutes or until the meringue is very thick and glossy.


 2.Beat the butter and shortening together until soft, add salt and 1/5 of butter into the meringue, beat to combine.




 3.Slowly add the rest of the butter (little by little), beat until fully combine, add the vanilla beat to combine.

Crème au beurre or French Buttercream

 2. The syrup is ready when it reaches 117°C; pour it over the egg yolks  and continue whisking until cold.
Add salt and beat to combine, then add the butter 1 tablespoon at a time. Increase the mixer speed to high for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the butter is fully incorporated.
