Made with beaten egg whites, this frosting is similar to meringue, but is more stable and sturdy enough for piping. And, like meringue, it also takes well to browning with a small kitchen torch. Use immediately, as the frosting will harden quickly (have your piping bag ready).This recipe is from "Martha Stewart's Cupcakes."

    The flavor is really great. I added vanilla bean with the vanilla extract. In between a meringue and almost like marshmallow, but very light and fluffy in texture. Still stiff enough for a tight star pipping and for the small round pipping tip for added details. It took significantly longer than 7 minutes but I don't see that as a negative.

    For the frosting is it powdered sugar or granulated?
