My Dad, Lee turned 60 years young on September 28th! To celebrate, we surprised him with
B-Day decor and cupcakes at the tailgate for the ISU vs UNI game.
The Cyclones also surprise him with a nice win 🙂
I made these picture perfect cupcakes with yellow mountain frosting. Yes, it’s not exactly high on the health food list, but it sure does hit the sweet spot in my heart.
White Mountain Frosting
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup white corn syrup
2 tsp water
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
Blend sugar, syrup and water. Boil rapidly until mixture spins a 6 to 8 inch thread off a spoon. Beat egg whites until they stand in stiff peaks. Pour hot syrup in steady stream into beaten whites, beating constantly until icing stands in very stiff peaks. Blend in vanilla and yellow food coloring.
Slightly sweet and light frosting!
