Marshmallow Frosting for these Beautiful Soft Rainbow Cupcakes
- 6 egg whites
- 1½ cups sugar
- ¼ tsp cream of tartar
- 1 & ½ tsp vanilla essence
In dry stainless steel, bowl add your egg whites
Place it on top of a pot with boiling water making sure the bowl is not touching the water, keep the pot on the stove on low heat
Start whisking the eggs by hand, add the sugar, and continue to beat until the egg whites are warm and the sugar is dissolved
Take it off the heat and use a hand beater to start beating, add the vanilla and cream of tartar.
Beat continuously for about 10 minutes until the frosting is nice and fluffy
Pipe on the cupcakes.
You can use a blow torch to toast the tops if you like
Feriel modified and instead of the marshmallow frosting used a creamed cheese frosting and piped it in rosettes.
TIPS AND TRICKS
Ziploc bags! Use a Ziploc bag to pipe the batter into the cupcake holders, as it is much easier than spooning and spreading each layer.
Looking for stunning and perfect white frosting rather than use shortening over butter, although, *personal preference*, I think butter tastes better than shortening.
Be cautious, DO NOT overbake the cupcakes, as you for sure DO NOT want the tops turning brown.
In order to get that perfect and beautiful star, you should use a large closed star decorating tip.
