Meringue Frosting for Raspberry White Cake

Use this recipe to make Raspberry White Cake. Since sugar can slow the rate at which egg whites foam, it must be added very gradually to form these glossy peaks of frosting.

    Hello, could I substitute the corn syrup with something else like honey or sugar as where I live (Italy) this product isn't so available? Thanks in advance!

    Oops - apologies, I meant to leave this comment on the rainbow cake recipe page - this recipe was the one I browsed to when seeking more information about why the rainbow buttercream meringue wasn't working.

    I agree with the others re: this buttercream meringue. If my frosting turns out it will be a minor miracle - I've been beating it for more than 10 minutes. More detailed instructions on this tricky process would be very helpful - if not essential. Warnings, like "be sure not to... " and "bring the egg/sugar mixture on the stove to ___ degrees could be added. Other recipes give a temperature reading - I'm not sure if I under or over-cooked the meringue. Pretty cake though!
