Seven Minute Frosting

Seven Minute Frosting recipe makes enough to frost one 10 and one 12 inch tier. If you want to pipe on decorations you will need and additional batch.

Makes about 8 cups.


  • 1 3/4 C Sugar
  • 1/4 C Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup
  • 6 Large Egg Whites (at room temperature)
  • 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

Heat 1 1/2 C sugar, the water and corn syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.

Increase heat; bring to a boil. Wash down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming.

Cook until it registers 235 on a candy thermometer.

Meanwhile, whisk the egg whites with a mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 C sugar; reduce speed to medium low.

Pour the hot syrup into the egg white mixture in a slow, steady stream. Increase speed to medium high; beat until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes.

Beat in vanilla; use immediately.
