I made Erin McDowell's French Buttercream, but it came out as a bowl full of liquid. Is there any way to salvage it?!

Unfortunately, I don't have a stand mixer, so I'm doing this all by hand (which definitely isn't helping!).

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

Most buttercreams can be melted , and chilled, then whipped again. It is the magic of egg protein + sugar + fat magic!
