Cook's Note

When making the buttercream, after a couple of bits of spread are added to the whipped whites, the blend will empty. It might look like soup or even look coagulated - don't give this a chance to dishearten you. This is only one terrible stage the buttercream must go through before getting to be wonderful fleecy icing.
