When it comes to wedding cakes most often they are associated with simple buttercream aka American style buttercream. However there's a few other types of buttercreams that can be used for wedding cakes. And I'd just like to tell you about the benefits of one of them which is the light an airy Swiss meringue buttercream.
There is a detailed explanation below why it should be chosen more often for fillings but briefly because I think it's the queen of buttercreams and Swiss meringue buttercream wedding cakes are just the best 👑👑👑 .

1.Texture and taste - what Swiss meringue buttercream tastes like in wedding cakes
Swiss buttercream is silky and light and it's subtle in taste. It is not sickly, just sweet enough and you don't taste any sugar grains at all as sugar is cooked in egg whites and therefore dissolved, it is soft like a mousse and its luxuriously light. It's easy to pipe, making it a great choice for more elegant cakes. Simply it looks and tastes amazing.
2.How stable is Swiss Meringue buttercream in wedding cakes? This is a winner over many other types of buttercreams because of its stability. The cooked egg whites and its lower butter content helps to hold its shape in warmer temperatures hence it's the perfect filling for wedding cakes and other occasion cakes for outside events too.

3. Swiss meringue buttercream flavour to choose for my wedding cake Swiss meringue buttercream can be flavoured in many different ways. It can be mixed with melted chocolate, jam, compote, concentrated flavourings or even liquids such as coffee, liquor or rose water can be added to it and they're not gonna change its consistency, it will still be very stable. Overall this heavenly buttercream is a great choice if you want a special filling for a wedding cake that tastes delicious, is stable and available in many different flavours. The only con I can think of when it comes to this heavenly buttercream is that it takes longer to make than the ordinary style buttercream but it is just so much worth the extra mile and you don't even have to worry about that because I can make it for you 😉
