Angel Feather Icing Recipe
2 large egg whites
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup corn syrup
2 tbsp cold water
1/4 tsp cream of Tartar (alternative you can use 1 tsp fresh lemon juice)
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract or almond extract
Place all the ingredients except but the vanilla into the top of a double boiler with fast-boiling water below.
Take your handheld electric mixer and beat the mixture until the icing has stiff peaks.
Remove the double boiler from heat, add the vanilla extract and keep on beating until it is thick, glossy.
You can add drops of food coloring if you like.
Spread it onto cakes with a metal spatula or pipe it onto cupcakes.
