Hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and enjoy celebrating with family and friends.
For our Easter celebrations, Sarah has baked us a Coconut Layer Cake with a marshmallow frosting.The Coconut Layer Cake tastes as good as it looks, and is the perfect accompaniment to chocolate eggs.
7 Minute Frosting
3/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoons of glucose
3 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place sugar, glucose, 1/4 cup water, and egg whites into a heat proof bowl. Place bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir ingredients until mixture reaches 70 deg C (160 degrees F) on a candy thermometer. (Takes about 2 minutes).
Place mixture in bowl of electric mixer. Beat mixture on high speed until glossy and voluminous, about 5 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Use immediately to cover cake.
