GHOST FROST­ING

2 cups (440g) caster sugar ½ cup (125ml) water ½ tea­spoon cream of tar­tar 6 egg whites

1 Pre­heat oven to 170°C (150°C fan-forced). Line muf­fin pans (⅓-cup/80ml ca­pac­ity) with pa­per cases. 2 Stir the but­ter, white cho­co­late, sugar and milk in a medium saucepan over low heat un­til smooth – do not let it boil. Trans­fer the mix­ture to a medium bowl; cool for 15 min­utes. 3 Whisk sifted flours into white cho­co­late mix­ture, then add eggs and vanilla. Drop ¼ cups (60ml) of mix­ture into cases. Bake for about 25 min­utes or un­til cooked when tested. Cool on wire racks. 4 GHOST FROST­ING Com­bine sugar, water and cream of tar­tar in a medium saucepan; stir over low heat un­til the sugar dis­solves. Bring to the boil; boil for 3-4 min­utes or un­til syrupy. In the medium bowl of an elec­tric mixer, beat the egg whites un­til soft peaks form. Grad­u­ally pour in the hot syrup in a thin, steady stream, beat­ing con­stantly, un­til thick and glossy. Con­tinue beat­ing un­til mix­ture cools to room tem­per­a­ture. 5 Spoon Ghost Frost­ing into a large pip­ing bag fit­ted with a 1.5cm plain noz­zle. Pipe a swirl to re­sem­ble a ghost onto each cup­cake. Po­si­tion jelly­beans onto each ghost to re­sem­ble eyes. Uniced cup­cakes suit­able to freeze. Not suit­able to mi­crowave.
