Coconut Frosting
From Mama's Tea Cakes (Canada, UK), by Wilbert Jones.


2 egg whites, at room temperature
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tsp light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups freshly shredded coconut mixed with 1 Tbsp sugar


Combine egg whites, sugar, water, and syrup in the top of a double boiler, beating with a wire whisk until thoroughly mixed. Place over rapidly boiling water and beat constantly with a whisk for about 4 minutes or until the frosting stands in peaks. Remove the mixture from the boiling water, add the vanilla, and continue to whisk until the mixture is thick enough to spread.

Yield: makes about 3 cups
