Mama C's Marshmallow Icing
This is a classic in our household, it has been the birthday cake of choice since the dark ages. EVERYONE, including our friends, request this cake for their special day. I remember my grandmother's making it, and I remember my mom whipping it up on the big day as well. My own family has taken this classic recipe to an all time new level in regards to sugar consumption... we double the recipe...ALWAYS!
By the time I have finished cutting the cake I am full of icing from fingertips to elbows...I have to fight off the kids from trying to lick it off. I'm not joking ... they LOVE it. I always make sure I use a confetti angel food cake for the actual cake, but that is just filler, it's still all about the icing.
Make sure when you whip this up and your family thinks you are "the cat's meow", you'll be handing off the credit to Mama C.
In a Large glass bowl:
4 egg whites whip until stiff
In a medium pot on High:, stir together
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
4 tbsp. hot water
Bring to a rolling boil for a good minute (don't rush or it won't set properly)
Once sugar mixture has boiled, Add slowly to the egg white mixture on low speed.
Once the sugar mixture has been added in, whip icing at high speed until it thickens
Add 1 tsp of vanilla and colouring if you choose
Continue to whip until stiff peaks form in the icing. (dab it to check)
Gob it on that angel food cake!
Eat, be messy, be merry and I wish everyone a Happy Birthday!
