1950s MARSHMALLOW FROSTING
I love it that my mom saved so many recipe clippings. This is a Karo Ad clipped from the early 1950s. Click on the picture to enlarge for easier reading.
Some can't get this to enlarge so here is the recipe:
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Karo syrup
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
Add salt to egg whites and beat with rotary beater until mixture forms soft peaks. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until smooth and glossy. Slowly add KARO, beating thoroughly after each addition, until firmly peaked. Fold in vanilla. If desired, tint with food coloring. Enough to frost two 9-inch layers.
Frosting Variations: Sprinkle with 1 cup coconut, or omit vanilla and add 2 tablespoons grated lemon or orange rind.
