How does Italian Meringue Buttercream taste compared to buttercream?

vanity021 | Mar 13, 2008 11:18 PM

I heard from someone that IM buttercream is less sweet than buttercream. I plan on making the Magnolia Bakery Cupcakes but think their frosting recipe is way toooooo sweet for my taste bud so wanted to try something different. Is it worth it? Is it to die for like whip cream? Is it still enough to pipe and decorate on cupcakes? How is the sweetness compared to buttercream?

THANKS in advance. I will do a trial run of the cupcake and whatever frosting I can come up with this weekend. My daughter's 1st birthday is next week.
