This is a simple icing and very good which incorporates golden syrup. Excellent when used with a devil's food cake.
I have been making seven-minute frosting for years. This recipe is so much easier and holds up better the next day without getting sugary. I measured the corn syrup in a measuring cup and boiled it in the microwave - couldn't have been easier, and no beating over the stove, - 13 Jan 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very easy to make. I used this on a 2-layer Devil's Food cake. I, too, boiled the corn syrup in the microwave which worked perfectly. This recipe is a touch bland so I doubled the vanilla. Also, to add a bit of sweetness and flavor to the frosting, once the entire cake was frosted I grated a bar of dark chocolate and sprinkled/coated the top of the frosted cake with the shavings. It added a really decorative look and a great flavor! - 14 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made the Devil's Food Cake I from this site and frosted it with this frosting for my mother-in law's birthday. It was a great combination. She had requested Seven Minute Frosting but it was very humid here the day I made it and I was afraid the frosting would not set up good. This frosting sets up very good even on a humid day! It is not very sweet but is good when spread over a rich chocolate cake. - 15 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
