This frosting is wonderful for a homemade coconut cake. Just add coconut on top of the frosting when you put it on your cake. Remember this frosting should be prepared when the humidity is not too high.

  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 1 1/2 tsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Combine egg whites, sugar, salt, water and corn syrup in top of double boiler, mixing thoroughly.

Step 3

Remove from double boiler, add vanilla and beat until thick enough to spread. Coconut can now be added.
