“This frosting takes a little extra time, but the results are worth it.” - by Carol
Original recipe yields 2 3/4 cups

- Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add syrup in a very thin stream, beating constantly. After all syrup is added, continue beating until frosting will hold its shape. Mix in vanilla.

"Not for decorating!!! And "takes some extra time" is underestimating it. It took me about 1 1/2 hours to make. Then when it seemed spreadable, I iced a doll cake for my daughter's birthday party. ..." See moreThe icing went on well, then quickly thickened. Since I had tinted it pink, it looked EXACTLY like I had made the Barbie's dress with Silly Putty! It flowed down the sides of the cake, and the effect was awful. I guess I should remember that great baking rule, do not experiment when it's a special occasion, but I was looking for a good alternative to too sugary buttercream. Should have just sweetened some whipped cream and had done with it."
"I loved this recipe! It was easy enough to make that my 10 yr old & 8 yr old children made it to put on our cake for Jesus' birthday! It was so yummy!!! We added 1/4 tsp. of Orange Extract, and it had..." See more the most awesome flavor to it!!! Definitely a recipe to keep!!!"
