Frosting preferences vary from person to person. Some may find it absolutely delectable and a must-have on a cake, while others prefer to have a very little amount. However, frosting is always a hit when it's fluffed to perfection and has the perfect amount of sweetness. It can bring a plain cake to life. If you're new to baking or want to try something different but simple, then this recipe is perfect for you.
This seafoam frosting is a fluffy brown sugar frosting. It's an easy frosting to make. A reliable candy thermometer makes the cooking a snap. While you pay good attention to the candy thermometer, all you have to do is beat some egg whites stiff peaks and you're practically finished. The finished product is fluffy and shiny and is sure to amp up the presentation of your cake as well as its flavor!
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 4 large egg whites
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine the brown sugar, water, and cream of tartar in a heavy saucepan; stir to blend. Attach a candy thermometer. Bring to a boil. Boil to 242 F on the candy thermometer (thread stage).
Meanwhile, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Slowly pour the syrup mixture into the egg whites in a thin stream while beating.
Beat in the vanilla.
Now you should have a generous amount that's enough to frost and fill a 2- or 3-layer cake.
Serve your cake and enjoy!
