  4. Pour batter into cupcake liners that have been placed into a cupcake tray.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean
  6. Let cupcakes cool completely.
  7. To make frosting, pour egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in a metal or glass heatproof bowl. 
  8. Place bowl over a saucepan with simmering water to create a double boiler.
  9. Whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and egg whites are warm.
  10. Remove egg whites from heat and with an eclectic mixer, beat on medium high speed until frosting is stiff with glossy peaks.
  11. Pipe onto cupcakes and then use butane torch to toast marshmallow frosting.
