    This was good but very sweet! I don't have an egg beater (do they even sell them anymore, LOL) so I used my electric mixer. I started over boiling water & it was ready in 7 minutes - hence the name. Thanx Donna!

    Donna, Your a woman after my own heart,I have kept my recipe for this frosting from my mom too,it is a great tasting kind of a crusty icing that is sweet and really good,it was put on all of us kids' birthday cakes as we were growing up,there were ten of us,so you can figure it out for yourself how often it was made at our house. :) Thanks for the memories,Darlene
