Steps to make Homemade Marshmallow Crème (Frosting)
Whisk egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar
Place 4 large egg whites, 1 cup of sugar, and ½ a teaspoon of cream of tartar in a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan filled with two inches of simmering water but be careful not to let it touch the water. Using a handheld mixer, whisk constantly for about 4 minutes until the sugar dissolves and the mixture has thinned out. The mixture will be thick and tacky at first, and then thin out and appear frothy on top.
Remove from heat
Add vanilla extract
Frost cakes or cupcakes
