  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, blend egg whites and salt together in a bowl on medium speed until soft peaks form.

  • Meanwhile, bring corn syrup to a boil in a saucepan; add marshmallows and stir until melted.

  • Raise mixer speed to high. Very carefully, pour the hot syrup in a steady stream between the side of the mixing bowl and the moving beater. Beat until mixture is cool enough to touch; mix in vanilla extract. Makes enough to frost a 9×13-inch cake or an 8-inch layer cake.

It uses the technique of an Italian meringue, however; the hot sugar syrup should raise the temperature of the mixture enough to pasteurize the egg whites. If you are concerned, you may use pasteurized egg whites instead.
