Pastel Palette Frost

This is an easy and delicious marshmallow-type frosting. Use any color of jelly powder to fit the occasion: I chose red for Valentine’s Day!

Pastel Palette Frost:

Half of one 3-oz. (85 g) pkg red jelly powder (see Note)
1 egg white
½ c. granulated sugar
⅛ tsp. cream of tartar
2 tbsp. cold water

Combine all ingredients in the top of a double boiler or in a metal bowl balanced over a saucepan of boiling water. Using electric mixer, beat at high speed until frosting forms stiff peaks. Remove from heat, continuing to beat 1 min. longer. Use immediately.

Note: This recipe makes enough frosting for 18-to-20 standard-sized cupcakes or approximately 4 dozen mini-cupcakes. Double the recipe for the filling, top, and sides of a two-layer cake.

Mixture will initially look like this

Beat until frosting peaks. Remove from heat, beating 1 min. more

Messy business! Just the way I like it!

Show a little fruit filling - or keep it a surprise!
