This is a family heirloom recipe. I most recently used this with Mirjam's "Ultimate Chocolate Cake"---with the filling she has in her recipe. This is just so good..........

This is a very easy frosting that has a super good, fluffy sweet taste. Make sure you add the syrup very slowly in a thin stream to the egg whites! I used this to frost a chocolate sheet cake that dissapeared very quickly! Thanks melismak!
