This is easier than Italian meringue. However, one recipe of mine is good for a two layer cake or sheet cake.
When you make those swirls it uses a lot of frosting fast. I got the special tip, two actually, and the bags. To frost 24 cupcakes, it takes a double or more recipe and I need two bags full.
So my double boiler frosting wouldn't frost very many cupcakes and it gets fluffier than in a stainless bowl over hot water (water shouldn't touch the bottom of the bowl).
Thanks! I’ll try it!
