The most divine cupcake frosting EVER!!

ok this has got to be my favourite frosting for cupcakes - its so light and fluffy yet marshmallowy at the same time - yum!! I posted this once before about a year ago and im coping out by posting it again -ive come down with the bug the boys had! Hopefully its a 24hr one here too and will be gone quickly but i thought it best not to actually bake anything while im icky! LOL

Best Frosting Ever!

200g sugar
80ml water
0.8g cream of tartar
2 egg whites
5ml vanilla extract


1. In a saucepan, stir together the sugar, water and cream of tartar.

2. Cook over medium-high heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is bubbly.

3. In a medium mixing bowl, whip the egg whites and vanilla to soft peaks.4. Gradually add the sugar mixture while whipping constantly until stiff peaks form, about 7 to 10 minutes.

5. Frost the cake of your choice.Dont skimp on any of the boiling or mixing - its well worth it for peaks that stay perfect :)

Will be back tomorow with another recipe and some elf antics :)

  8. They look gorgeous!
    hope you are feeling better x

  9. I want to make this but I'm not sure what grams convert to.... what is 200g in either ml or imperial?

  10. I really do need to try out this one...wonder what it would be like with chocolate addition?

    Not sure if this is too late Carennedy, but 25g=1 oz so 200g would be 8oz

    Happy baking!
