    2. Transfer egg white into a mixing bowl and whisk with a bubble whisk , until peaks are firm but fluffy.
    Add butter, one spoonful at a time. Change over to a paddle fixture and contiue to beat the butter cream to remove bubbles. At this point, you can add your flavourings or colours. For this, I added a few drops of pink colouring.
