  1. Beat egg whites until soft peaks are formed, then add a dash of salt and beat until firm peaks are formed. In a sauce pan or microwave, heat corn syrup until boiling. Slowly drizzle the corn syrup into the egg whites while beating at high speed. Once entirely incorporated, continue beating at high speed for approximately 6 to 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.

I have been making seven-minute frosting for years. This recipe is so much easier and holds up better the next day without getting sugary. I measured the corn syrup in a measuring cup and boiled it in the microwave - couldn't have been easier, and no beating over the stove,

This icing was easy to make with a nice texture, but the taste didn't match. I kept adding vanilla and sugar hoping it would taste better, but it did not improve much. I probably wouldn't use it again.

Very easy to make. I used this on a 2-layer Devil's Food cake. I, too, boiled the corn syrup in the microwave which worked perfectly. This recipe is a touch bland so I doubled the vanilla. Also, to add a bit of sweetness and flavor to the frosting, once the entire cake was frosted I grated a bar of dark chocolate and sprinkled/coated the top of the frosted cake with the shavings. It added a really decorative look and a great flavor!

I made the Devil's Food Cake I from this site and frosted it with this frosting for my mother-in law's birthday. It was a great combination. She had requested Seven Minute Frosting but it was very humid here the day I made it and I was afraid the frosting would not set up good. This frosting sets up very good even on a humid day! It is not very sweet but is good when spread over a rich chocolate cake.

Good stuff- not too sticky sweet, but still kind of marshmallow-y. Use fresh egg whites (at room temperature). My mother attempted this frosting with egg whites from the box (like All Whites), and the silly things wouldn't turn into a meringue (even though the box claims it will work).

I like using this frosting - It is not loaded with fat from margerine or oil and it is not overly sweet. It is light and fluffy and easily spreads on the cake. I followed th eother reviewers and heated the corn syrup in the microwave. I reserved a cup of frosting and after I frosted the cake, I made the reserved frosting into chocolate frosting by adding a combination of cocoa powder and chocolate syrup to keep the consistensy the same - or a bit thicker that the white frosting.

this recipe was too bland i added some extra vanilla and some confectioner sugar which gave it a much sweeter taste.

Made this last night for some sugar cookies.....this is a very light fluffy frosting, so for iced cookies not so good if you want the icing to harden a little bit. We LOVED this frosting though! I thought is was just sweet enough and I have a very big sweet tooth, not near as sweet though as the icing on bakery cakes that everyone always seem to eat around. It almost reminded me of twinkie filling but a tad thicker, and kind of had a marshmallow taste to it. It does make a lot! My husband just had some on strawberries this morning...YUM!
