This frosting takes a little extra time, but the results are worth it.

Directions

  1. Combine sugar, water, salt, and vinegar in a saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat just until clear. Then cook without stirring until syrup spins a long thread when dropped from tip of spoon, or to 240 degrees F (115 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add syrup in a very thin stream, beating constantly. After all syrup is added, continue beating until frosting will hold its shape. Mix in vanilla.

Not for decorating!!! And "takes some extra time" is underestimating it. It took me about 1 1/2 hours to make. Then when it seemed spreadable, I iced a doll cake for my daughter's birthday party. The icing went on well, then quickly thickened. Since I had tinted it pink, it looked EXACTLY like I had made the Barbie's dress with Silly Putty! It flowed down the sides of the cake, and the effect was awful. I guess I should remember that great baking rule, do not experiment when it's a special occasion, but I was looking for a good alternative to too sugary buttercream. Should have just sweetened some whipped cream and had done with it.

I loved this recipe! It was easy enough to make that my 10 yr old & 8 yr old children made it to put on our cake for Jesus' birthday! It was so yummy!!! We added 1/4 tsp. of Orange Extract, and it had the most awesome flavor to it!!! Definitely a recipe to keep!!!

This is basically a recipe for homemade Marshmallow Fluff, with a slightly more spreadable consistency; not what I was expecting. Not sure if the results are "well worth it."
