Fluffy White Frosting

  • 1 1/4 cups white corn syrup
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Heat the corn syrup to boiling in a small saucepan. Combine the unbeaten egg whites, salt, and vanilla in a metal bowl. Beat the mixture at a high speed with an electric mixer until the egg whites are stiff, but not dry. Slowly pour the boiling syrup into mixture, continuing to beat until the frosting is fluffy and hangs in peaks from the beaters. Spread the frosting between the layers of the cake and then over the top and sides evenly. Garnish as desired.

  • Yields: enough frosting for one cake
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
