Marshmallow frosting

This is the silky cupcake frosting you see on the cupcakes made by the two sisters on the food channel show, DC Cupcakes, or known as Georgetown Cupcakes.

Trust me, its delicious. Sweet, but delicious.


  • 3 Egg whites
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp Golden syrup
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla extract

Mix all the ingredients together in a heat proof bowl. Or use your mix master bowl.

Place the bowl on top of a saucepan, with 1/4 of boiling water.

Whisk continuously by hand until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is frothy and slightly opaque, (this will take 10 minutes).

Remove from heat and whip the mixture on high speed in the mix master until its white and thick and holds its shape.

I used it as the filling in my whoopie pies, but can also be used as cupcake frosting.

Use straight away.

You can refrigerate it, but it will be harder to work with when cold.
