Boiled Icing

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • Flavoring
Stir 1 cup granulated sugar in 1 cup water, and set on the stove to boil; do not stir after it begins to broil; test it with a cold spoon, and when it "threads" by holding the spoon high and letting the syrup fall back very slowly into the saucepan, take it from the fire; add the beated white of 1 egg to the hot syrup, and beat 5 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Add flavoring. Spread on the cake while warm.
