I boil 2 c.gran. sugar and 1 c.water to 230-234 on candy thermometer and stir in 3 c. ground blanched almonds and 2 eggwhites and cook whole together for 3 minutes and knead into a bit of powdered sugar...more work but safe and is like commercial marzipan not icing- old Spanish recipe)

It isn't necessary to eat frostings with raw eggs anymore. The American Egg Board provides instructions on how to make your favorite recipes, including frostings, by slowly bringing the raw eggs to the appropriate temperature in a double boiler - along with some of the sugar and liquid to prevent curdling - and then continuing with your original recipe (see Egg Safety).

I tried this recipe, did exactly as it said, and after little more than 24 hours in the fridge I took it out to see.... too sticky and liquidized to work with. I even tried rolling it into powdererd sugar. So I looked up an original recipe, only to find out it was double this one.. only it still had 2 egg whites. Note to recipe giver.. please change the amount of egg whites in this recipe, otherwise add more almonds. thanks
