Ingredients

  • ½ c. cake flour
  • ¾ tsp. cream of tartar
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp. powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¾ c. + 2 tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 3 tbsp. warm water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line one muffin pan with liners, set aside.Place sugar in a food processor for about 2 minutes until it becomes fine, almost powder-like
  3. Sift half of the sugar with the salt and cake flour, set aside remaining sugar.In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, water, vanilla and cream of tartar
  4. After whisking for approximately 2 minutes, switch to a hand or stand mixer
  5. Gradually sift in the remaining sugar, beating at medium speed until medium peaks have formed.Add flour mixture a little at a time (you'll want to add it in about 8 additions), it should be just enough to dust the top of the peaks
  6. dust the top of the foam
  7. Use a spatula to fold in the dry ingredients in a circular motion, being careful to not deflate the peaks.Once all of the flour has been folded in, carefully spoon the mixture into the prepared pan, filling ¾ of the way full
  8. Place in oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until the tops are lightly golden brown (they will also look a bit bubbly)
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.To make the whipped cream, combine all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment
  10. Slowly bring speed up to high, beat until the cream has reached desired consistency
  11. Pipe or spread on to cooled cupcakes
