The amazement of sticky frosting

sticky sweet goodness

This was my first time making sticky frosting from scratch.  It is quite an amazing process.

This fluffy white frosting recipe came from The Modern Baker...Combine 4 large eggwhites, 1 cup granulated sugar, large pinch of salt, and 1/2 cup light corn syrup in your mixing bowl over a a saucepan of gently boiling water until 130 degrees and whisk by hand until the sugar is dissolved. Then put your mixing bowl back on your mixer and whip it. The result? Sticky wonderfulness to top off some devils food cake cupcakes.
