About this recipe: This is my mother's soft and fluffy frosting recipe. This makes enough to fill and ice a 2 layer cake. If you are using it for cupcakes - add colour at the end of cooking.


Serves: 12 

  • 2 egg whites
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 80ml cold water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:7min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. Put egg whites, sugar, water and golden syrup in a heat-proof bowl and place on top of a pot of simmering boiling water (a double boiler). Beat until mixed well. Continue to beat constantly with electric beaters while it cooks for 7 minutes or until it will stand in peaks when beater is raised. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Beat again to mix in.
