White Cloud Frosting
- ½ cup (115 ml) egg whites
- ½ teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 ½ cup (340 g) regular sugar
- ¼ cup (65 ml) water
- 1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- food coloring, optional
Put the egg whites and lemon juice into a mixing bowl.
Put the sugar, water and vanilla extract into a saucepan and give it a quick stir. Place the saucepan on the heat and warm the mixture until the temperature is 248 ˚F (120 ˚C). Use a sugar thermometer if you have one.
When the sugar syrup is 248 ˚F (120 ˚C), whisk the egg whites until frothy.
Add the sugar syrup a little at a time, then continue whisking until very fluffy, about 5 minutes. Do not overmix.
Add a few drops of pink food coloring if you want a beautiful pink color.
Ready to use!
