This recipe is a fond favorite from my chilhood. I don't think that my mother ever used a different frosting on our birthday cakes. The recipe is from my mother's personal hand-made recipe book. The prep and cook times here, I have estimated.
- Combine all ingredients except vanilla in upper part of a double boiler, beating constantly with an egg beater until frosting stands in peaks.
- Remove from heat.
- Add vanilla.
- Beat until frosting will spread easily on a 2 layer 8 inch cake.
