Ok, have a birthday cake to decorate and fancy trying butter icing with meringue type which Dan lepard has in short and sweet. The recipe says "heat the egg whites and sugar over a moderate heat" in a pan, till dissolved. SURELY it will go to a gelatinous egg whitey texture?!?! Am too chicken to try it and waste loads of eggs, has anyone tried? Am looking for alternative but similar Italian meringue style butter icing instead now, <coward emoticon>

There is a youtube of a very similar recipe here, it seems to work...

Thanks oddboots, exactly what I needed grin. May give it a bash

Thanks again oddboots, just tried it and it worked perfectly. It went thinner rather than thicker, weird.

Very glad it worked. It's not an icing I'd ever heard of so thank you for introducing me to it. smile
