Watch It!

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring sugar and cup water to a boil

  • While your sugar mixture is heating, place egg whites in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.  

  • When your sugar reaches 230 degrees on the candy thermometer, begin to whip eggs whites at medium-high speed until stiff.

  • When sugar reaches 240 degrees, remove it from heat immediately, and with the mixer running, add it to your egg whites in a stream and beat on high speed.  

  • Whip your meringue until no heat remains. Place your hands along the sides of the bowl to check.

  • With the mixer still running, add your butter bit by bit, beating until spreadable, 3 to 5 minutes; then, beat in vanilla.

  • Dice cup of strawberries. Cut the skin off of 3-4 strawberries, dicing as finely as possible to create a paste.

  • Divide out 2 cups of your buttercream and fold the diced strawberries and paste into the buttercream. Continue folding in gently until all of the liquid is absorbed.
