Fluffy Seven-Minute Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
This is the best fluffy frosting I have used in 53 years of cooking...This is the 3rd time I have made it and it turned out perfect...I did take the advice of adding the 2 Tbls. white corn syrup, that keeps the frosting soft for the next day..If you are having problems adding the syrup slow the mixer down...And you need to cook the syup to med hard ball stage..242 is soft ball..I use the method of spinning at least a 6 to 7 inch fine thread with the every time..Dip a spoon in the syrup and pick it straight up..about 10 inches above the pan..Let the hot syrup drip and when enough drips come off the spoon it will spin a thread..I use the wire whip on the Kitchen aid only to beat the egg whites..remove that and use the open beater when you add the syrup. I set the speed of the mixer at the middle spot on the slide, keeping a nice even beating.Pouring your syrup in a fine stream is good but you have to keep pouring before the syrup cools too much or you will have chunks of hard crystals in your bowl...Dark chocolate cake with this type of frosting won my husbands heart on our first date 45 years ago...I make this for all of our special days..
