Sweet, heavenly buttercream!

Ahhh, sweet, sweet buttercream! I found this picture at cafefernando. This picture represents peace, quiet and beauty in my very busy, don't-stop-til-their-all-in-bed day. For some reason making buttercream, to me, is very cathartic. I love watching the raw ingredients transform into a voluminous cloud of whipped beauty.

After a long day there is nothing more relaxing than whipping up a fresh batch of buttercream. What I really adore about making buttercream is the relatively quick gratification in taking sugar and butter, cooking it and then whipping to perfection juxtaposed with the lifetime process of raising four children. I exhale with pure contentment at the completion of a heavenly creation.
