I’m sharing this post in connection with my favorite gluten-free chocolate cake recipe (pictured below) because I thought this frosting totally deserves its own page.
This white frosting is a simple Italian buttercream from whipping meringue with butter and warmed sugar.
It’s creamy and silky smooth with a lightly sweet, vanilla flavor. Perfect for piping or cake decorating! Best of all, it’s more stable than traditional buttercream at room temperature, making it perfect for celebrations.
Make Ahead and Storage Tips for White Frosting
If you’re not using the buttercream immediately, keep in mind that you will need to give it a quick whip to get the silky smooth consistency. It can be refrigerated for a few days. When ready to use, all it to come to room temperature.
