This sweet, fluffy and airy icing with a hint of maple is sure to please any sweet tooth. This makes enough to frost one 9x13 inch cake.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 egg whites
- 1 pinch salt
Pour maple syrup into a small saucepan. Heat to between 223 and 234 degrees F (106 to 112 degrees C), or until fine threads form when dripped from a spoon. If it reaches the temperature before your egg whites are ready, remove from heat, and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whip the egg whites with salt until they can hold a peak. Gradually drizzle in the hot syrup while continuing to whip until thick and fluffy.
