Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fluffy Boiled icing I looked this up on the website because I was puzzled that it had changed. The original recipe is in all my Wilton books and it calls for powdered sugar and cream of tartar as well. This is the recipe I used when I taught for Wilton and I don't understand why it has been changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't be scared of the cooking part. If your room was too hot and the frosting doesn't seem to be super fluffy or super thick (when i first made it that's how i thought it was supposed to be). Treat it like ganache. Put a big blob on top and spread to sides, letting it fall down the. keep doing until totally frosted. Then i did it like a "shadow" cake. Poured melting chocolate around top edges and let it dribble down the sides. This made it pretty even though it wasn't fluffy. i'd make it again even if it didn't get fluffy like i want because it tastes a little like marshmallow creme and doesn't have as much sugar as some recipes :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ADD FLAVOR, by adding a few drops of peppermint extract... I've made this icing many times... as it's my husbands fav! (not so much mine lol) however, every time I add a couple drops of peppermint extract because he loves the mint flavor of this icing on choco cake... adds more flavor to the marshmallow fluff haha.
