So this post is like WAYYYY late! I promised it and never delivered. But I AM posting it now! So that means I did keep my word 🙂 Looking through these pictures gets me excited all over again. It is the most amazing cake and frosting. It smells like what heaven will smell like I think 🙂
A whip of wonder!
I could just about put my fingers in it!
I loved finding some affordable flowers to place onto the top. Just the right touch!
A sprinkling of coconut…
And pretty edible beads..

White Billowy Lady Baltimore Frosting:
3 cups sugar
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
flaked coconut, for garnish
Using a mixer, beat egg whites until stiff.
Boil sugar, water and cream of tartar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until it reaches 238 degrees on a candy thermometer, or until a small amount of syrup will form a soft ball when dropped into very cold water (this is what’s known as “soft ball stage”).
With the mixer running, slowly pour the hot syrup over the egg whites and continue to beat until the mixture is of spreading consistency (this could take up to 10 minutes; don’t be alarmed if your mixture is runny, just keep beating and eventually it will thicken up.). Add vanilla.
