When I was growing up, I would walk past a bakery where, in the display window, they had chocolate cake iced with this marshmallow icing and then poured a chocolate ganache over that and let it set. It was so yummy. You have the cake now so why not take it to the next level?
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup water
- 2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
- 1/3 tsp. cream of tartar
- 1 1/2 tsp. clear vanilla (if you have it on hand) or regular will do
Boil and sugar and water and slowly add the egg whites. While still warm, add the cream of tartar and vanilla. Beat this until completely cool in your food processor.
Ice your cake and, if you wish, add the ganache.
OMG! Everyone will want this one for their birthday…every year,
