    I read all the reviews and followed this recipe to the T, with disastrous results. Not only was I not able to pipe it, it wouldn't stick to the sides of the cake as a glaze. Really bummed. Not at all like the photos.

    I just made this today. The proportions are perfect and the icing holds up beautifully. I made half of the recipe to frost a 9x13 inch pan of brownies and still had 1/4 leftover. It's not too sweet and it tasted great with toasted coconut and almonds on top. Thanks Martha!

    Loved the fluffy smooth texture of the frosting. Torched beautifully. I took them to the office the next morning and the frosting had turned to sugar. How long does the frosting last? Did I do something wrong in the process?

    this is fantastic, I tried another marshmallow cream/frosting/fluff recipe and was not happy with it, turned right around and tried this and it is awesome, putting on S'mores cupcakes for granddaughter's birthday. I popped the cupcakes back in the oven to toast the marshmallow and it worked as good as a kitchen torch I don't have. Will use this again!

    This is absolutely fabulous. Never gritty and not too sweet. I use it for my son's birthday cake, a Chocolate Fudge w/chocolate chip cake which is very rich. This is a perfect icing. Though I haven't piped it I'm sure it would do so beautifully.

    I love this recipe for my hot chocolate cupcakes! I also made it with peppermint extract instead of vanilla and it was delicious! But only use about half the amount of extract for peppermint because it can be strong.

    Why is this called marshmallow frosting when there isn't any marshmallows in it? It's just like any regular meringue frosting, haha

    This is very good but I can't seem to get it to stiffen up. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why? I used it as a glaze instead and it was still excellent.
