7 Minute Frosting

This was my mothers favorite frosting. It is VERY sweet and although your arm will hurt after making it- it is well worth it! It tastes like marshmallow frosting.

2 cups white sugar
3 egg whites
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 tablespoons cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In the top of a double boiler, combine the sugar, egg whites, corn syrup, water and vanilla. Place over boiling water and beat with an electric mixer on high speed for 7 minutes, or until frosting forms peaks when beaters are raised. Remove from heat. Use immediately to frost a cooled cake before it hardens.
