    Oh that was good stuff ... we used to get it as a special icing when we were kids!

    Try a google search for boiled frosting or 7 minute boiled frosting.

    Boiled Frosting

    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    2/3 cup boiling water
    2 egg whiles
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Combine granulated sugar and cream of tartar in saucepan. Add boiling water and stir until sugar is dissolved.
    Place saucepan over heat and bring mixture to a boil.
    Boil rapidly, without stirring, for about 10 minutes or until syrup forms a soft ball in cold water, or until candy thermometer indicates 240 degrees.
    Remove from heat while testing. Beat egg whites until stiff.
    Pour hot syrup in fine stream over egg whites, beating constantly with electric mixer until frosting is cool and of proper spreading consistency.
    Stir in vanilla.

    Yes I remember so well, it is 7 minute icing.I have always thought it looks so pretty on a cake. My mother made it so often. It was never one of my favorites, because for me it was definitely toooo sweet. But was and still is a favorite of my brother's. He makes it all the time.
    Use the recipe posted above, when you make the frosting you will know it is done when it forms stiff peaks after beating in the egg whites.

    This brought back memories...my Mom made a 7-minute frosting and sprinkled sweetened coconut on top of the frosting. It was 7-minute because you beat it 7 minutes in a double boiler. After one day, the outside of the frosting was crispy. Yummmmmmm.

    Fluffy White Icing
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup water
    1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
    1 tsp. corn syrup
    2 egg whites stiffly beaten
    1 tsp. vanilla
    Heat first 4 ingredients slowly to boiling and cook without stirring to 242 degrees or until a small amount dropped from tip of spoon spins a long thread. Pour syrup slowly onto the beaten egg whites, beating constantly. Beat until cool and thick enough to spread. Add vanilla.
    Will frost one two-layer 9 inch cake.


    This is good and a little quicker than the 7 minute icing.
