Old Fashioned 7 Minute Frosting
Old fashioned 7 Minute Frosting that tastes like marshmallow cream. A light and fluffy frosting for just about any cake!
1+1/2 cup of sugar.
1/3 cup of cold water.
2 egg whites.
A pinch of salt.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar.
Step 1 Mix the sugar, water, tartar cream, egg whites, and salt in a medium glass bowl.
Step 2 place on the burner water in pan or double boiler to simmer. Beat the egg mixture for 30 seconds using an electric mixer.
Step 3 Place the bowl on the saucepan of a double boiler on high until rigid and light for up to seven minutes.
Step 4 Remove it from heat, add vanilla extract, and add mix for 2 minutes until integrate.
Step 5 The frosting is set rapidly, so you need to use it directly.
Note: To frost a layer cake, you would need two recipes with this icing. This recipe is beautifully doubled, no need to make two different batches, just double it and make it all at once.
