Seven Minute Frosting for cake recipes. Seven minute frosting is named for the length of time it takes to beat it into a luscious and creamy delight. Frosting is made with beaten egg whites and is sturdy enough for piping. Seven Minute has a delicate flavor and has lighter-than-air texture. The frosting will harden quickly, so have your cake already prepared.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
