White Mountain Cream

Ingredients for White Mountain Cream Recipe

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cold water
White of 1 egg
½ teaspoon vanilla or
½ tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions
Put sugar and water in saucepan, and stir to prevent sugar from adhering to saucepan; heat gradually to boiling-point, and boil without stirring until syrup will thread when dropped from tip of spoon or tines of silver fork.

Pour syrup gradually on beaten white of egg, beating mixture constantly, and continue beating until of right consistency to spread; then add flavoring and pour over cake, spreading evenly with back of spoon.

Crease as soon as firm.

If not beaten long enough, frosting will run; if beaten too long, it will not be smooth.

Frosting beaten too long may be improved by adding a few drops of lemon juice or boiling water.

This frosting is soft inside, and has a glossy surface.

If frosting is to be ornamented with nuts or candied cherries, place them on frosting as soon as spread.
