The ingredients and the proportions are perfect in my opinion, but for the method, follow the instructions of reviewer Scott d BBQ Man. You need to mix the dry ingredients together with the water, and cook and whisk continuously until thick. Keep the beaten yolks separate until the mixture is as thick as you want it to be. Then put a few spoonfuls of the white mixture into the eggs, beat vigorously by hand, add a bit more, repeat, and eventually put the whole combined mixture back into the pot that's on the heat and continue to cook and whisk for one additional minute. Then finish by removing from heat and whisking in juice and butter. Do not stop stirring at any stage or it will clump up. Believe me, it's worth it. I wanted to eat the whole thing with a spoon without putting it on the cake. It made enough to make a thick layer between my two cake layers (8" cake) and also a layer on the top (underneath the icing - made it extra delicious!). Oh and I don't have a double boiler and just used a very thick-bottomed saucepan and it worked fine.
