White frosting recipe
So, at the risk of sounding ridiculous, I feel like this white frosting recipe has revolutionized my life. There are those small things in life that are not really that important, but make life a little more beautiful, a little more delicious, a little easier. This white frosting is one of them.
I struggled with trying to make white frostings for a long time, but they all were butter or cream cheese based, which made them all turn out butter-tasting or off-white. Ther are times when you need a WHITE frosting. Not an off-white frosting. Like a baptism, for exemple. Or an oreo cookie. Or Christmas cupcakes you plan on sprinkling crushed candy canes on. (see pics below)
So you're welcome, here is the recipe.
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
2 egg whites
Halve, double, triple ingredients according to necessity. Combine them all in a small bowl that fits neatly on top of a small pot. Bring some water to a boil in the pot. Beat the ingredients with an electric mixer for about a minute. Then, over the boiling water, beat them some more for about seven minutes. See picture of me posing as Martha Stewart above. ;)
