Classic Seven Minute Cake Frosting

a1angiem's picture
Here is the wonderful, fluffy frosting that reminds me of marshmallows. I use this on my Mocha Spice Cake (see video) but you can use it on any cake. It makes a generous amount for filling and covering a 2-layer cake...and enough to lick the bowl! You will need to use a double-boiler to cook the frosting, but a heavy bowl set over a pan of water will work as well.
Ingredients
  Egg whites 2 Large
  Sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Water 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Light corn syrup 2 Teaspoon
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Directions

MAKING
1. In a saucepan, add and combine the egg whites, sugar, salt, water and light corn syrup.
2. In another pan or double boiler, boil about 2 cups of water and place the saucepan over it. Start beating the mixture with an electric mixer for 7 minutes or until the egg whites are thick.
3. Add vanilla extract and continue beating for another 2 minutes until the mixture is of spreading consistency.

SERVING
4. Use this frosting for cakes or cup cakes.
