Classic Seven-Minute Frosting

A delicate flavor and light texture keep this frosting from being overwhelming. Coconut cake or lemon meringue cake are excellent bases for this frosting.

    I tried making this recipe and it did not work. After adding the syrup, the peaks would not come back. Any feedback as to why?

      After making the 7 minute icing, I did what my mother did for years and added 16 oz of marshmallows covered my cake and added coconut. It's better than any recipes I found on the internet. Try it
