I loved this recipe Northen Reflectionz. It was quick and easy to make. Best of all I didn't have to stand over a hot stove for 7 minutes while beating, like my mom use too, all I did was place everything in the Kitchen Aid and away we went...I did beat it for 9 minutes to get the texture I was looking for. Awesome recipe, it tasted fantastic, was light and fluffy with great flavor. Thanks for sharing this outstanding recipe, which I will make again.

I LOVE this recipe!! I have been making 7 minute frosting on the stove for years. Even though it is one of my favorite frostings, it can be a real pain to make. I tried this recipe and it worked beautifully the first time! Since it doesn't require cooking, I could use my stand mixer. That freed me up to do other things, and in 7 minutes the frosting was perfect! Thank you sooo much for sharing - I will never COOK 7 minute frosting again!

This recipe failed completely. I don't know what I did wrong. I don't think I will use this again.

OMG!!! Love it, Love it! I usually don't put frosting on a cake because it is just too sweet. This was just right... light and fluffy. Was perfect on a Lemonade Cake recipe I tried. Thanks!!

I want to thank you and your mom for this delicious recipe. It saved my day.

However after serving ....This recipe was delicious right after it was made BUT... Later that evening when I served the cake the frosting no longer had the perfect consistencey it had had earlier. It became strangely spongy and the flavor lacked.

I love 7 minute frosting and have made it many times. I thought this recipe would be good to try since I could get it done a little easier. Well thoughit was easier, it was a failure. This whipped up great just like regular 7 minute frosting. I iced a cake with it to use the next day (as I have done before with regular 7 minute frosting with no problems). Well I decided to give the cake a look a few hours after I made it....The frosting had completely disintegrated inot this strange foamy mess! So I guess if you plan on using this frosting rigt away it would be fine, but waiting just cause me to have to wipe my cake clean.

OMG...I could shove my face in the bowl and eat it all before I frost my cake! It is so simple to do, I'm sad I have never done it before! I am so happy to have found this no cook version and can't wait to share it with my family! Thanks for this amazing super simple recipe...I agree w/the person who said they will never buy store bought frosting again! It just mixes away while you clean up a tad! I would easily give this 10 stars if I could :)

the frosting is very good and easy to make however, you MUST refrigerate it once it is on the cake if you are not going to eat it immediately. Mine broke down and all of the liquid sugar seaped out all over the cake plate - tasted good, but looked a mess!

Is a great recipe, but... It collapsed a little while after. Would be great with pots de creme, a chilled dessert or in a warm drink of some sort, but not on a cake. I find that the old tried and true method works best for cakes. I believe it has to do with the amount of sugar (1 1/2 is what I usually use) and the melting down or carmelization of the sugars is what helps to stabilize and hold the consistency of it in the traditional method. Love it though! It may not be best suited on a freshly baked cake served later, but will work beautifully with many other desserts!
