If any of you love the fluffy, white, 7 minute frosting that is normally made on top of the stove in a double boiler, let me encourage you to try this recipe out. I discovered this particular recipe this morning, made it and there just may never be any going back to the double boiler again! It's light! It's fluffy! It's creamy! It doesn't require a double boiler! And best of all, it's easy! This recipe came from an online search at www.recipezaar.com. I mixed some coconut into the frosting and used it to frost the coconut cake that I made earlier this morning.
Now, if there's just one cup of coffee left...
