Seven-Minute Frosting

By Mark Bittman

Published April 4, 2020

Billowing and perfectly white like a marshmallow cream or meringue, this cake topper is a lot of fun and a perfect accompaniment for cakes and cupcakes. Sometimes called boiled icing in old cookbooks, it’s fluffy, glossy, and — best of all — comes together fast. Use it right away and don’t let it sit out too long, or it will harden and start to deflate.

Background made of textured smears of white cream. Flat lay style
