Can anyone help me out with this? 

I’m making a beer mug cake and thought that a white marshmallow frosting would work well for the foam on top but I can only find recipes that are from the US and use US ingredients that I can’t get here. 

I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me out with a recipe for this.

Thanks guys!

do you have marshmallow cream in the tubs?  if you do you could try the faux Italian Buttercream:

One 7 oz. jar of Marshmallow cream, 1 (4 oz.) stick of Butter, 2 Tbsp. Crisco Shortening( solid white shortening), 1 tsp. Vanilla, tossed it all in the bowl, mixed a minute until smooth.  Add 1/4 cup of powdered sugar.  Mix again until smooth.

Hi Mbalaska, Do you use salted or unsalted butter for this? Thanks

4 egg whites

200g of icing sugar

250g softened butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

 

put the egg whites into a very clean heat proof bowl

add the icing sugar and place the bowl over a pot of simmering water

whisk until the mixture is thick and warm and leave a trail when the whisk is lifted

remove the bowl from the heat and whisk in an electric mixer until cool and the meringue stands in peaks

beat the butter until very soft and fluffy

gradually add to the meringue and whisk after each addition

flavour and colour as required

then leave to cool

 

this always works for me

daprincessnora: I use salted. and the faux recipe is kind of a simple shortcut recipe.  The real dreamy icing is the Swiss Meringue Buttercream.

 

misspink: it appears that you're looking for Swiss Meringue buttercream or Italian Meringue buttercream and there are lots of choices in the recipe section.  It sounded like you wanted icing made out of marshmallow cream. I may have misunderstood the question.

so many choices.....try them all.

 

cheers
