Hi Nancy, I am making swiss meringue buttercream for the first time, do I need to add cream of tartar to the egg white and sugar mixture? Also, can I mix swiss meringue buttercream with regular buttercream for stability. The cake with sit out for a while. Is swiss meringue buttercream recommended for wedding cakes that are sitting out for a long period of time?
