Quick Jam (Conserve) Icing
1 egg white ( feed the yolk to your cat or dog)
1/2 Cup all fruit Conserve..(suggested:Black raspberry, Raspberry,
pinch of salt
1. Heat water to boiling in the bottom of a double boiler. In the top of the
place egg white, jam and pinch of salt.
2. Immediatly with an electric mixer begin beating mixture. When the mixture
is heated and well mixed, turn off flame, leaving pan over boiling water and
continue to beat. Have patience. Slowly but surely, the white will whip into
stiff peaks. Spread on top of cake.
NOTE: This is not a good icing to place betwen layers as it is primarily
air. If you are
making a two-layer cake, spread a layer of the same or a contrasting jam
between layers, and top with this icing.
