The name is a little decieving.  It really takes 15 minutes or so from start to finish, but this recipe is pretty easy,a nd the results are light, fluffy, marshmallow-like meringue frosting.  It's definitely worth the effort.  This recipe produces around 8 cups of frosting.  Pictured below are coconut cupcakes mounded with the seven minute frosting.  There is a lot of frosting on each cupcake, and there was enough for 18 - 24 cupcakes.  Enjoy!

Seven minute frosting


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  • Mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2/3 cup water, and 2 Tbs corn syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, and cook until mixture reaches 230 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  • While the sugar and water are cooking, whisk egg whites with a mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. With mixer running, add remaining sugar. With mixer on medium-low, pour sugar syrup in a slow, steady stream down side of bowl. Increase speed to medium-high, and whisk until stiff peaks form and mixture is cool, about 7 minutes.
