Korean Bean Paste for Piping Buttercream Flowers
The new trend is buttercream flowers in an Asian paste made with white beans called Korean bean paste buttercream but is not really a buttercream. It has very little butter and sugar but lots of beans. Perfect for those who do not like sweet buttercream.
This recipe below is by G.G.Craft, the same Korean lady that created the glossy Korean buttercream recipe. I have not tried this buttercream recipe but I have tried the Korean bean paste for sugar flower which is similar to making gumpaste flowers.
Here is some of her work for inspiration. She does have lots of buttercream flower tutorials on her YouTube Channel.
