Keeping this in view, what is the difference between Italian and French buttercream?
French buttercream uses egg yolks rather thanwhites. Anyone who has ever had a sunny side up egg knows thatyolks have much more flavor than whites. Like Italianmeringue buttercream, French buttercream startswith a sugar syrup and requires a candythermometer.
Similarly, what type of buttercream is best? American buttercream is deliciously creamy, supersweet, and incredibly fluffy, and by far the easiestbuttercream to master. It's just a matter of beatingsoftened butter until it's fluffy, adding powdered sugar, cream,and a little vanilla and whipping it all together.
Also, what is the difference between buttercream and French buttercream?
Buttercream is a beloved frosting made witha combination of fat and sugar. At my house, we're all aboutthe butter + confectioners sugar variety. French buttercreamis made by heating a sugar syrup until it reaches soft ball stageand then whipping it into beaten egg yolks and softbutter.
What are the three types of buttercream?

- 1) AMERICAN: Powder sugar + softened butter + milk +vanilla.
- 2) SWISS: Egg whites + light corn syrup + white sugar +softened butter.
