My favorite frosting recipe! My family loves it with chocolate cake, but so good with a moist white cake, sprinkling the frosting with angel flake coconut. A VERY SPECIAL cake is the haupia cake listed on recipezaar. Try it with this frosting and the coconut!

I love this frosting, but it doesn't last long. Eat it within the first day because the frosting doesn't keep its original form for too long. Pair with the Black Midnight Cake. http://www.recipezaar.com/Black-Midnight-Cake-185770

This is wonderful. When I was little, my mom always made me angel food cake with this frosting, and ballerinas on the top! It HAD to be pink! I added a teaspoon of espresso powder to the water and it gave a mild coffee flavor to the finished frosting and I also put it on angel food cake. Great for any occasion!

This was always my favorite frosting growing up- a special treat that I required on every birthday. Today I still make sure I get a cake with White Mountain Frosting on my birthday every year. My kids have caught on to the tradition, and it's their number one request as well. I just make a white or yellow cake, drizzle some sweetened condensed milk on top of each layer and frost with this special frosting. Sometimes I will top it off with coconut. Yummmm!

Add the 1/4 cup cocoa and use on ANGEL FOOD CAKE !!! Frosting is light & fluffy, just like the cake! U will luv it. It really is a perfect combo.

This recipe is a variation of "Seven Minute Frosting". I followed Martha's directions, today except that I used a double-boiler instead of direct heat. This makes a lovely, light and fluffy frosting. I would like to add that I do not suggest making this frosting on a very humid day or you will have some problems getting it to stiffen as it should. I do recommend this frosting to those who dislike the frostings made with confectioner's sugar.

I've made this a couple of times and rather liked it. Was a nice compliment to a marble cake I made.
