 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Sugar
  • 4 tb Water, cold
  • 1 Egg white, beaten
  • 1 ts Vanilla


Add the water to the sugar and boil until the syrup spins a thread. Pour
the hot syrup very slowly into the beaten white of egg, whipping
constantly. Flavor with vanilla and spread the icing on the cake. For
chocolate icing, add 2 Tbsp grated chocolate to the warm icing. To tint

give a yellow color. Strawberry, raspberry or cranberry juice will give a
pink shade. Source: Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book - Fine Old Recipes,
