A blast from the past, I found this in my grandmother's handwritten recipes. Once I made it, great childhood memories came flooding back. My grandmother loved to bake. This frosting is great on a chocolate or gingerbread cake. Quick to make it will soon become a family favorite, replacing the more traditional frostings you might have been used to using.

How to Make Whipped marshmellow frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Into a double boiler, add water, sugar, eggwhites
  2. Stir ingredients to mix.
  3. Using a beater, beat constantly for 7 minutes. You will see the mix will become frothy then more dense and fluffy.
  4. At about minute 4, add cream of tartar. Keep beating mix until minute 7.
  5. Remove from over hot water source, add your choice of flavoring and coloring (if desired).
  6. Beat to cool for about 4 minutes. The mix will now be a soft but stiff peak seen when lifting the mixer out of the mix.
  7. Spread onto cupcakes or cake. If you let it set and don't spread it, it will continue to firm up into a marshmallow form.
