Fluffy White Icing

Yield enough for one (9-inch) 3-layer cake

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups light corn syrup
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups grated coconut (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Place syrup in a small saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until syrup reaches soft ball stage (240°).

  2. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until foamy. While beating at low speed of electric mixer, add sugar. Turn mixer to medium speed, and continue beating while slowly pouring hot syrup in a thin stream over egg whites. Continue beating until stiff peaks form and frosting is thick enough to spread. Add vanilla; beat until blended. Spread immediately on cooled cake. Sprinkle with grated coconut, if desired.
