7 minute frosting

thedessertlady's picture

I have two questions.
I'm looking for a great 7 minute frosting that can be piped on to cupcakes.
I want to know if you can leave the iced cupcakes at room temperature for a couple of days. I was concerned, from a 'food-safe standpoint', because of the egg whites in the frosting.

My aunt used to make wonderful 7-Minute Icing.  Don't you cook the egg whites?  If so, they should be safe.

You can (cooking the icing over hot water cooks the egg whites), but the icing is not at it's best after even a couple hours, much less days.

What Tracy said. It is a light sugary frosting that just "goes away" after a short time.
