This was an awful gooey mess and wasn't worth all the effort and we followed the recipe exactly. The sugar never dissolved and it was a grainy marshmallow glue by the end. We ended up tossing it and just going for a straight buttercream for the Spice cake.

This is just the classic recipe for seven minute icing. I have made it many times, successfully. There are only minor changes in this recipe from the one in the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. I doubt if any of these changes would make a difference in the outcome. This should make an excellent icing.
