Hello everyone! To start off the year with the right foot I’ve made a delicious recipe.  I used Italian Meringue for another recipe I was making and let me tell you this Meringue turned out to be the best I’ve ever done so I had to share it with you! I’ve seen so many and I’ve tried so many but this one Oh my! It’s creamy, fluffy and airy, sweet enough and so beautifully white! You will love this.

How to Make an Awesome Italian Meringue

Meringue has always been my challenge. When I was a teen I used to make a lot of desserts, mostly pies and 3 leches cakes and I always had a hard time with meringue. Maybe you remember my Key Lime Pie post. Well, that’s when I learned about the different kind of Meringues and I understood. I started practicing and perfecting it ever since. Now we are kind of addicted to it LOL. Hope you like it!

    Hi, this is one of my fav recipe, I can add one tip to make it evrn better, while cooking the sugar syrup add two tableapoon of corn syrup or glucos. This will improve the texture greatly making it more thick and rich.and assuring there are no risk of the frosting turning “sugary” once it has dried. I also like to add a bit of almond extract which for me takes it over the top ?

    I love Swiss Meringue, but have always been intimidated by Italian Meringue. Can’t wait to give it a try now!

    Thank you for this straight forward recipe. I had a little trouble at the end, where the meringue became somewhat watery. Maybe I overbeat it? Also, I wish you would have stated how much this recipe made. I realize now that it didn’t make enough frosting for my cake. Maybe next time I should add more eggs?

    My mother used a frosting like this to frost our birthday cakes when we were growing up! I remember that it would form a crispy sugar crust on the top and stay all creamy inside! Yum!
