Buttercream Frosting – Egg Question

Paladar | Mar 30, 2007 05:01 PM

I'm baking a cake for a friend who has requested white frosting (not cream cheese or marshmallow, just plain white frosting). I plan to use a buttercream recipe with simple syrup but after reading through recipes got confused. Is it better or what's the difference between a recipe that uses whole eggs vs. yolks only vs. egg whites only? If I use yolks will the frosting be yellow?

Thanks for your help.
