TIP: When making the buttercream, after you have added about half of the butter to the meringue mixture, it may look curdled and runny. This is normal and you should continue adding the rest of the butter. Once you have finished adding the butter and it has mixed on medium speed for about a minute the buttercream will be creamy and glossy looking again.
