Unfortunately, I don't have a stand mixer, so I'm doing this all by hand (which definitely isn't helping!).
Maybe Martha can help you: http://www.marthastewart...
Thank you, that helped a lot! I couldn't decide if heating or cooling was the way to go, so I started by heating it further over a double boiler and then whisking like crazy as it cooled. It's been in the fridge for a couple hours now, and seems to be thickening up pretty quickly! Fingers crossed
how did it work out?
Most buttercreams can be melted , and chilled, then whipped again. It is the magic of egg protein + sugar + fat magic!
