  • 1 1/2 c white sugar
  • 1/2 c water
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract


  • In a double broiler (or a stove top safe glass bowl over the top of a pot of boiling water) combine sugar, water, egg whites, and cream of tartar with electric mixer and whisk attachment until combined, about 30 seconds. Place bowl on top of pan of boiling water (water should only be about 1-2 inches deep) and beat with electric whisk attachment for seven minutes until soft peaks occur. Remove from heat and add coconut extract. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes or more until frosting is spreading consistency
