Posted by AnonymousThis frosting can be used on any yellow or white layer cake. It's very good even on a box mix.
- 1 cup water 3 tablespoons cornstarch 3 egg yolks 1/2 cup lemon juice 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1/2 cup butter
1 Combine sugar and cornstarch in heavy saucepan add water and stir until heated, set aside.
2 Beat egg yolks and add lemon juice, stir in small amount of sugar mixture to warm yolks. Combine yolk and sugar mixtures, add butter and return to heat.
3 Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly until thickened. Mixture will resemble pudding. Cool slightly and spread on cooled cake. Makes enough to frost and fill one 8 inch four layer cake.
