This 7-minute fluffy frosting is made with a cooked syrup and egg whites and makes enough to frost two layers. Plus, it works for a variety of cakes.


Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients, except vanilla, in the top of a double boiler.

  2. Beat with electric mixer for a minute, then place the pan over boiling water (make sure the bottom of the pan is not touching the boiling water).

  3. Continue beating for about 6 minutes, or until the frosting mixture will stand in stiff peaks.

  4. Remove from the heat and beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla.
