To Make the Raspberry Buttercream

  1. Mash the raspberries in a sieve on-top of a medium bowl until only the seeds remain. Discard the seeds.

  2. Place the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar in a bowl of a standing mixer and place the bowl on top of simmering water. (water should not touch the bowl)

  3. Using a hand whisk, whisk the egg whites and sugar until it reaches 130F, or until it is hot to the tough of your finger.

  4. Remove from the stove and beat with the whisk attachment until the meringue has tripled in volume and is cool to the touch.

  5. Add the butter small piece at a time and continue mixing until you have a soft and fluffy buttercream. Add the raspberry puree and mix until incorporated.

  6. Spoon the buttercream in a piping bag fitted with a Wilton 1M tip and pipe your desired amount of buttercream on each cupcake.
