This is an old-fashioned frosting - I remember my mother making it often, but I haven't done it for years. She also made the White Mountain frosting and at Christmas would add crushed peppermint canes and red coloring to make a pink peppermint frosting. I suppose she also used oil of peppermint in it - but I'm sorry I can't remember. I would follow the variation for 7-minute frosting to be on the safe side. Nancy - hope you enjoy taking cakes to family gatherings this summer and hope these recipes are of some help.
