- 200 g white sugar
- 80 ml water
- 0.8 g cream of tartar
- 2 egg whites
- 5 ml vanilla extract
- In a saucepan, stir together the sugar, water and cream of tartar. Cook over medium-high heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is bubbly.
- In a medium mixing bowl, whip the egg whites and vanilla to soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar mixture while whipping constantly until stiff peaks form, about 7 to 10 minutes. Frost the cake of your choice.
Dont skimp on the whisking or the boiling – it is well worth it and well worth waiting just that little bit longer! 🙂 These are now ready for my aunts birthday tea along with the marshmallow mermaid pie 😀
