Frosting for Red Velvet Cake

2 egg whites
175g icing sugar
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 teaspoon lemon juice
pinch of fine salt

What to do
Place all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk over boiling water, using an electric whisk for 5 minutes, or until it stands in peaks.

Remove from the heat and whisk again until the frosting has cooled.

This is enough frosting to cover the top and sides of a deep, 20cm cake.

Swirl the frosting over your cooled Red Velvet Cake with a frosting tool or palette knife.
