Contributed by: CynthiaAdded: Nov 17, 2007 at 02:21 AM


A light fluffy frosting, yet very satisfying to those nonnies who miss frosted cakes.

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup agave syrup (the original recipe called for 1 1/2 cups of sugar so, adjust to your taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, for O's or flavor of choice for O nonnies, 1/8 teaspoon peppermint extract, 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract etc.
How to make it:
  1. Put egg whites and cream of tarter in top of double-boiler (don't put it over the hot water at this time)and beat on high speed until foamy.
  2. Then begin drizzling the agave syrup into the egg whites while beating.
  3. Once all of the agave syrup is beaten in put the top of double-boiler over the hot water in the bottom of the double-boiler. The water should not touch the bottom of the pan. Beat on high speed for 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. It should form stiff peeks.
  5. Add the flavoring, and beat 2 minutes longer.
  6. If you let the frosting sit the agave syrup can drain to the bottom, make sure you stir it up before you spread it on your cake.
  7. The stirring will not hurt the frosting.
  8. Enjoy
