Hi I follow your blog from Bake in Paris. I adore all your food and pictures a lot. I'm about to make swiss buttercream along your recipe. I wanna make sure again, after adding the flavor, do I have to beat on low speed for 45 minutes? it seems very long to me.

Thank you for recipe anyway.

Angelee.
