Recipe by Mimi in Maine

This is a very old recipe that is popular in my family. My grandmother made it when I was little and then my mother. It is not as sweet as other frostings and is cooked in a double boiler and because of this it stays soft. You put it on hot and sprinkle with chopped walnuts if you like and it is great. This should frost a 9x13 cake. If you want it real thick, half it again.
