Gluten Free Marshmallow Cream – Frosting or Filling
Last Updated on
A quick and easy way to make delicious and fluffy gluten free marshmallow cream to use as a frosting or filling is to use a gluten-free brand such as Marshmallow Fluff. However, you can make it at home from scratch (see below recipe). This way, you can be certain of what it contains and know that it is 100% free of gluten. Kids love this stuff!
As you can see in the photo, this is my second version of a s’more cupcake. For the other version click here.
Add egg whites, sugar, cream of tartar, salt and (corn syrup, if using) to a heat-proof bowl and whisk to combine. Place over a saucepan of simmering water (not touching bowl). Constantly whisk until the mixture becomes hot, about 5 minutes and when it reaches about 148°F.
Pour the mixture into the bowl of your electric mixer and beat on low speed for about 1 minute. Increase the speed to high and whisk until stiff peaks form, about 6 minutes.
Add vanilla and whisk just until combined.
Use immediately in your favorite desserts. When piping into fancy designs, you may use a torch to brown the edges. Use as a frosting or to fill cupcakes or whoopie pies.
You can also substitute gluten free marshmallow fluff for the corn syrup.
