7-Minute Frosting

THIS is the way we do candles in my house.  My sister found this super fun Sparkler candles.  Wouldn't these be fun for 4th of July??

She made the cake for Mother's Day dinner and we all sang Happy Mother's Day to each other.  You don't know this song?  It sounds very similar to the Happy Birthday song.  ;)

Then we all shut up so we could eat the best cake and icing EVER!  7-Minute Frosting.  LOVE IT!!!

7-Minute Frosting

2 eggs whites
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
1/3 Cup Water
2 tsp. Corn Syrup
1 tsp. Vanilla

Combine unbeaten egg whites, sugar, water and corn syrup in top of double boiler; beat just enough to blend ingredients.  Add sugar slowly to mix well.  Place over rapidly boiling water and beat with hand beater or electric mixer until mixture is light and fluffy and will hold it's shape.  (7 minutes by hand or 3-4 minutes by electric mixer.)  Remove from heat; add vanilla.  Continue beating until frosting is stiff enough to stand in peaks.  Makes enough frosting for tops and sides of 2 (9-inch) layers, 3 (8-inch) layers or 2 dozen cupcakes (if you don't eat it from the bowl with a spoon).
