don't know if this has been posted before but I can't seem to find a good, simple, and relatively quick recipe for marshmallow fluff icing. I made smore's cupcakes and need some sort of marshmallow icing to frost them within the next few hours...any ideas are appreciated

Here is the one I have used. It is WONDERFUL!!!

8 egg whites, room temperature
2 cups sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp vanilla extract

In a clean stainless steel mixing bowl or double boiler, combine egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar. Whisk frequently, heating the mixture over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches 160 degrees. Transfer egg mixture to stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Begin mixing at low speed, gradually increasing to medium-high speed as the mixture becomes thicker. Beat until stiff, glossy peaks form. Add in the vanilla and mix until just combined. Transfer frosting to a piping bag fitted with a large star tip and frost as desired.
