Sea Foam Frosting

Gooey meringue frosting that is great on spice cakes.

Sea Foam Frosting


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 Stir the unbeaten egg whites, sugar and water together in the top of a double boiler. Cook over briskly boiling water, beating with a rotary beater for 7 minutes or until frosting looks fluffy and holds a soft, gentle shape.

2 Remove from boiling water, add vanilla extract and continue beating until frosting holds definite peaks.

3 Spread between layers of cake and then frost the sides and top.
