My Obsession.

I have a pretty short list of "go-to" recipes. Weird I know. You would probably think it was lengthy but it really isn't. In all honesty, why should it be? I recommend being exceptional at a few great dishes than being mediocre at 100. I digress. . . .Anyhows, this recipe is phenomenal. This is the best frosting you will ever have in your entire life.
I say that with the up-most confidence. Being that today has been just FANTASTIC I am going to share with you the fluffiest, greatest confection of all time! I give you Fluffy White Frosting.
This frosting can be dyed any color, holds for up to 3 days just as fluffy as the day you made it (in the fridge), can be torched for a marshmallow-like effect, and tastes like heaven.
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.In a saucepan, stir together the sugar, water and cream of tartar. Cook over medium-high heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is bubbly.
2.In a medium mixing bowl, whip the egg whites and vanilla to soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar mixture while whipping constantly until stiff peaks form, about 7 to 10 minutes. Frost the cake of your choice.

**** Little note: I let the sugar mixture cool just a little bit before adding to the eggwhites. I find it helps hold the eggwhites better.


  1. These all look SO good. I need to try this recipe!

  2. OMG! I haven't been so excited about a frosting recipe in a long time. This is a breeze to make, taste yummy, and is so fun and fluffy. Thank you. I will definitely make this again.

  3. So this is a basic meringue recipe. Just add butter and you've got buttercream!

  4. I made this recipe today. The flavor is great BUT I got distracted with other party prep and it deflated a lot which made me sad because I was at home in ac.

    1. you didn't cook it long enough on stove top and didn't let it cool before adding to egg whites........... TRY IT AGAIN =)
      I make mine and it last for days ~~~

  5. worst recipe for white fluffy frosting did not come out nearly as it was supposed to!

  6. I have used this recipe before years ago, thaught I had lost it for ever.
    got it now and not losing it.
