My mother-in-law has been making this Angel Food Cake Frosting for birthdays for years! My daughter wanted it for her birthday this year, so I’m happy to share the recipe with you.
I just used a box mix to make the angel food cake.
Angel Food Cake Frosting:
2 cups sugar
2 egg whites
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
food coloring (optional)
Put about 2 inches of hot water in a saucepan and set heat to high. Mix the first three ingredients in a double boiler over the saucepan. Mix on low 1 minute, then on medium-high for about 10 minutes (until stiff peaks form). My mother-in-law’s tip is to have a magazine sitting there so you can flip through it while you mix!
When the water boils, turn down the heat to low. During the last minute add the vanilla and food coloring. Immediately pour over the cake. Depending on the humidity level, it may stay soft or it may get hard and crunchy. Both ways taste great!
