I got this from my Grandma who got it from my Aunt Phyllis. It is incredibly easy but does pretty much require a stand mixer or a person with stamina. It is a very light whipped satin icing (not very sweet) and we love it best on chocolate cake but it frosts anything well. Be patient and whip it for the full 20 minutes or it will not set. To make this a chocolate whipped icing use unsweetened cocoa powder. Add it at the end using 1/4 to 1/2 cup depending on desired richness. *Melted chocolate will make it fall and so will heavy cream or half & half (it just won't set).
