Lofty Frosting For Sprout

Sprout is making cupcakes tomorrow and is planning on using a marangue frosting that she really likes. But today was very humid, which can destroy a marangue, and tomorrow promises more of the same. She has asked for a backup butter-cream, or other frosting that will be light, lofty, and will hold up in high humidity on a cupcake. Andy help would be appreciated.

Should be able to really whip up a buttercream and incorporate more air into it. Tasty and light!

I tried this one and it was good: The Best Whipped Frosting | Can You Stay For Dinner?

Princess and bakechef, that looks like a great recipe (though I am personally not a fan of frosting with flour but they do stand up well). However, I think the Chief is looking for help from Andy M here and not the rest of us.

Sorry Chief but I know you love me! I couldn't resist.

I think this recipe will help sprout achieve what she wants.

I was looking for the right, humorous way of saying that.

You guys are killing me. Or is it that my typos are killing me?

I can't fathom how the letter - d - got in the word - any. But it did. Now Andy is one fine cook, and one of the greats in DC. But yes, I was looking for input from everyone for my DD. And thanks everyone.

Hah! What are the odds! I like it because I can add whatever flavor I like and coloring.

In all seriousness, I do recommend this recipe even though I don't use it myself. I know many decorators who do use a flour recipe and it works well. It is also a little less sweet than other frosting recipes which many people like.

Another reason for me to use it. I started searching out lower sugar recipes for Shrek when he was diagnosed with Diabetes and thought this one was a keeper. It works for us.

Thank you for the recipe! The meringue buttercream worked out beautifully, but I can't wait to try this one! On the site that I got my Swiss meringue buttercream recipe from, the woman said that she loved using her flour recipe, but it wasn't as stable with additions. Has anyone tried to add things to this recipe? Chocolate? Fruit? Any flavorings besides vanilla?
