  1. In medium saucepan, measure in sugar, water, corn syrup, and salt over medium heat. Stir to dissolve. Cook to soft ball stage, 240 degrees F (115 degrees C), without stirring. It should fall from spoon in a thin thread.
  2. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form; do this shortly before syrup has reached the soft ball stage. When ready, pour syrup in a thin stream over stiff egg whites, being careful to beat continuously the whole time. Add vanilla and beat until the right spreading consistency is achieved.

I've always thought that cooked icings were more work than they're worth but this one was so easy to make I plan to use it on all my angel food cakes from now on. Replace the vanilla with flavo...

It should be noted that this recipe is for a specific cake...the Lady Baltimore Cake...which is a very light cake. It isn't necessarily for the typical cake or cupcakes.

This is a great merinque frosting. Very fluffy and light. I let the egg whites come to room temp before I whipped them, and after adding the syrup, I beat them for about 10 minutes. Awesome!

This was a fabulous frosting. Very easy to do and made quite a bit of frosting.

This is a very easy to make frosting. I made it for my 8-year old sonĀ“s birthday and he and his friends loved it. I recommend this recipe.

It was OK, there's other frosting recipes I prefer. Thanks.

My daughter's favorite cake is angel food with "sticky frosting" like her grandmother and aunt has always made. I have tried many, many recipes but for one reason or another they never quite mad...

OMG, This is reeally GOOD! I made a Angle Food cake and I was looking for a Seven Minute Frosting,and I came upon this recipe,read the reviews,thought I would try it. It does make lot,to good to...

I have no candy-making experience (soft-ball stage? What's that?), but found this recipe very easy. It was so simple, yet turned out better than other cooked-frostings I've tried.
