“This is a fluffy whipped frosting that is lovely on cakes. Makes enough to frost one 9x13 inch cake.” - by Carol
Original recipe yields 2 1/2 cups
- Cook sugar, corn syrup, and water in a saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Cover then cook for 2 to 3 minutes longer. Uncover and continue cooking to the firm ball stage 244 to 248 degrees F (118 to 120 degrees C). Remove from heat.
- Beat egg whites in a large mixing bowl with the vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt until stiff but not dry.
- Pour hot syrup in a slow, steady stream over beaten egg whites, beating constantly. Continue beating until frosting stands in peaks and begins to lose its gloss, about 10 minutes. If necessary, thin with a few drops of cream.
