Old fashioned 7 Minute Frosting that tastes like marshmallow cream. A light and fluffy frosting for just about any cake!


  • 2 large egg whites unbeaten
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup cold water
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar or 1 teaspoon corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine the egg whites, sugar, water and cream of tartar in the top of a double boiler. Mix thoroughly.

  • Remove from the heat.
  • Add vanilla and beat until thick enough to spread.
  • Makes 5-6 cups of frosting.
