7 Minute Frosting Recipe

7-minute frosting is a beautiful white fluffy frosting that's made by adding sugar syrup to egg whites for a stunning frosting that will impress your guests


  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup Karo Syrup
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  • Beat egg whites in a bowl of a KitchenAid Mixer on high using the whisk attachment until stiff peaks form.
  • In a medium saucepan cook sugar, water, corn syrup and salt over medium-low heat until the syrup is at the softball stage (a drop of syrup into cold water forms a ball at the bottom of the glass).
  • Once the syrup is at the softball stage, slowly pour the hot syrup to the egg whites with the mixer on low.
  • Once all the syrup mixture has been added to the egg whites, turn the mixer on high and mix for about seven minutes or until stiff peaks form.
  • Add vanilla and mix until the vanilla is combined with the icing.
  • Ice cake while the frosting is warm.
