Marshmallow Meringue Frosting, Suspiro De Marshmallow

This is a marshmallow meringue frosting that is very white. It's ideal for frosting vanilla, chocolate, and rainbow cakes, cupcakes, pies, puddings etc. I am sure you'll enjoy its light texture and tasty flavor. It's thicker than the regular meringue frosting I use and shinier. I recommend working fast when covering a cake because the gelatin in the marshmallows makes it  a little difficult to manage with a spatula, but with a pastry bag it is "a piece of cake"!

Mashmallow Meringue Frosting

15 Large Marshmallows
2 tablespoons warm water
2 egg whites
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar (optional)
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Bring the marshmallows and 2 tablespoons of warm water to a double boiler (Bain Marie), stirring just until melted and thickened.
2. In a saucepan bring the cup of sugar, salt and ¼ cup water until it forms a thick syrup to make a meringue.
3. When the syrup begins to thicken, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, continue beating on high speed, while you add the syrup in a slow continuous stream.
4. Let beat for two minutes then add diluted marshmallows and vanilla and beat until it forms strong peaks and cools down.  DONE!

a) You can substitute the 15 marshmallows for 1 cup of Marshmallow Cream
b) If you're looking for a Marshmallow Fondant recipe, you can find HERE.
c) When drys it feels like soft marshmallow and it is not sticky to the touched.

    Such a genius idea, combining the marshmallows, with the egg whites to make a fluffier, and amazing frosting. Your swirls, the cute little bunnies, the flowers...oh, my!

    Breathtakingly beautiful. Can I come to you for lessons?


  5. Just when I think it can't get any better, you make friggin' adorable, almost too cute to eat bunny cupcakes! Mari, these are absolutely awesome. I wish I could eat one!

  6. You are truly amazing. These cupcakes are just too beautiful for words!

  7. Wow! Everything looks too cute to eat.

  8. I'm making s'mores cupcakes tonight and the recipe calls for traditional merengue frosting, but it seems like this will actually taste more like marshmallows.
    I plan to use a mini torch to "toast" the frosting to really look like toasted mallows. Can I still do that with this frosting?

    1. Deanne, I have not used a torch with this type of meringue, but I don't see why can't be used. It does dry to a marshmallow texture so I think it would be OK. I would love to know the outcome if you do try it.

      Have a wonderful evening.

    2. Thank you! I'll hopefully have success to report tonight :)

  9. does it ok to sit in room temperature for a day? not melting?

  10. Anonymous- As I said in the instructions, these is a frosting to make and use right away. After decorating your sweet treats, yes, it is ok to leave them displayed for a day or two in a covered box.
