Black Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Ever wonder how to do this without adding loads of grainy black cocoa powder? We'll make our own black Swiss meringue buttercream, and in the video below, I'll explain the science and meaning behind every step.

You'll need the Vanilla Swiss meringue recipe below, or you can use my cakeculator to create as much of this Swiss meringue buttercream you need for your cake.

You'll also need some high quality gel food coloring, such as Americolor, which I buy from Amazon here.



Hi! I'm Adriana.

I built this site for the curious home baker. I'm a huge science + tech nerd; you'll feel right at home if you like exploring and experimenting in the kitchen too.

Here you can build cakes with my Cakeculator and find recipes to accompany the videos from YouTube, Tiktok, and Instagram.

I have lots of things to share... I hope you have fun around here!
