Prep Time 15 mins
Course Dessert
Servings 1 Cake


  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tarter
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup


  • In a small saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup and water.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat and continue to cook until the mixture reaches 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer or when a teaspoonful of the mixture dropped into ice water forms a soft ball that holds its shape when cool.
  • Whip the egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla extract to soft peaks in a large bowl.
  • With the mixer on medium high speed, slowly begin to pour the sugar syrup down the side of the egg white bowl in a thin continuous stream.
  • Continue to whip the frosting until it forms stiff peaks.
  • Frost your cake immediately with this frosting while it is still slightly warm as it is easier to spread smoothly than if allowed to cool completely.


We recommend using aluminum cake pans for gentle even heating with much less chance of over baking.
