Buttercream like Mum used to make!
Asked on 23 Jul 2020 by margaret
Can you please help. My mum used to make a butter cream with blancmange and it was lovely. I can’t seem to make it,it curdles every time. It was 4 ozs butter,4 ozs icing sugar and one cup of Blancmange. You had to make the blancmange with just less than a pint of milk. Beat the butter and sugar together then add the cold blancmange. Every time mine curdles. Any idea what I am doing wrong.whould love to be able to recreate it,thank you
It would be that the difference in the temperature of the butter/sugar mixture and the blancmange is too different or it could be that you’re not beating the blancmange gradually to the butter mix.
