Buttercream
6 ounces - PASTERIZED Egg Whites
24 ounces - Powder Sugar
3 Cups - Cold Cubed Unsalted Butter 

In a stand mixer on lowest speed mix pasteurized egg whites and powder sugar together. Once incorporated together, stop mixer, scrape the sides of the bowl and slowly bring to a high speed and whip together for about 10 minutes or until firm peaks form. 
Refrigerate butter until firm but not hard. Cut into small/medium cubes.
Once eggs whites and powder sugar are formed, add a few cubes at a time mixing on medium speed.
When all butter is added, set mixer on high speed for 3 - 5 minutes or until white and fluffy. 
* Chef note: once all butter is added, place plastic wrap around mixer to help keep buttercream in the bowl and not all over the kitchen *
