Marshmallow Frosting (Kopie)

Thursday, September 16, 2010 I’ve been following The Creative Chick Parade over at The Girl Creative and am so enjoying all the various crafts being shared.

How it works is, you merely link up a craft you’ve created and posted about on your blog. It can be an old post or a new one, it doesn’t matter. You just have to link up to the theme for the day.

Well, today’s theme is recipes and I recently stumbled across a really yummy frosting for cakes. It works especially well on cupcakes. If you pipe it on, it stands up beautifully – much like soft serve ice-cream! And the taste… well it tastes just like gooey soft marshmallow fluff! {In South Africa we get Cadbury’s “Sweetie Pies” chocolates with this marshmallow goo inside – and this frosting tastes just like it!}.

4 large egg whites

1 Cup ordinary sugar (white or brown)

1 pinch of salt

1 tsp vanilla essence

Place all ingredients except the vanilla essence into a bowl which you can place over a pot of simmering water.

{You could use a double boiler here instead}

Whisk the egg white mixture constantly over simmering water until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is hot to the touch. {It takes around 5 minutes}.

Pour the mixture into a bigger bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes. {Add the vanilla while beating}. After 3 minutes, the mixture will be lovely and fluffy.

{I used my Kenwood food mixer}

I love using disposable piping bags – {or you could even use a plastic bag} without a nozzle, I simply piped straight out the end of the piping bag directly onto the cupcakes.

Don’t you love how they look – and so yummy!!!

Hope you try this recipe. It sounds like a bit of work, but really it takes very little time and effort and they are so easy to pipe as the icing is very soft and much easier to squirt out than buttercream.
