Marshmallow Frosting

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by SayHay6

I recently stumbled across a really yummy frosting for cakes. It works especially well on cupcakes. If you pipe it on, it stands up beautifully – much like soft serve ice-cream! And the taste… well it tastes just like gooey soft marshmallow fluff!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients except the vanilla essence into a bowl which you can place over a pot of simmering water.
  2. {You could use a double boiler here instead}.
  3. Whisk the egg white mixture constantly over simmering water until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is hot to the touch. {It takes around 5 minutes}.
  4. Pour the mixture into a bigger bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes. {Add the vanilla while beating}. After 3 minutes, the mixture will be lovely and fluffy.
  5. {I used my Kitchen Aid food mixer}.
  6. I love using disposable piping bags – {or you could even use a plastic bag} without a nozzle, I simply piped straight out the end of the piping bag directly onto the cupcakes.
