    this was my favorite frosting when I was a kid....think I will have to bake a cake and make it for the grand kids.

    Warm a bit of milk, and melt regular sugar in it, as a substitute for powdered sugar and milk. (The thing about powdered sugar is that it just melts right in to any liquid -- so if you melt it another way you're good -- powdered sugar is fluffy, so you don't use the same amount of regular sugar.

    Then just flavor it to match the cake, as you would otherwise.

    Or get someone to run to the store!

    These 2 recipes are from my go-to Pillsbury Flour cookbook. I use to often make the 7 minute icing. I've never tried the Jiffy frosting, but every recipe I have made from this old cookbook was good. JIFFY SNOWY FROSTING Bring to boil 11/4 cups corn syrup Beat to form stiff but moist peaks 2 egg whites Very gradually, beat in hot syrup. Continue beating until very stiff and shiny. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/4 teaspoon food colouring (if desired) Makes sufficient to fill and frost two 8 or 9-inch layers. MAPLE FROSTING: Prepare Jiffy Snowy Frosting following basic recipe but substituting 1 1/4 cups maple syrup for corn syrup. SEVEN-MINUTE FROSTING In top of double boiler, combine 3/4 cup granulated sugar Pinch of cream of tartar Pinch of salt 3 tablespoons cold water 1 egg white Cook over boiling water, beating constantly with an electric mixer or rotary beater until the frosting forms stiff but moist peaks (about 4 to 7 minutes). Scrape sides and bottom of pan occasionally. Remove from heat and fold in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla Makes sufficient to frost an 8 or 9-inch square cake. Double recipe to fill and frost two 8 or 9-inch layers. This will take a slightly longer beating time. CHOCOLATE SEVEN MINUTE FROSTING: Prepare Seven Minute Frosting following basic recipe and gently fold in 1 square unsweetened chocolate, which has been melted and cooled. PEPPERMINT SEVEN MINUTE FROSTING: Prepare Seven Minute Frosting following basic recipe but substituting 3 or 4 drops peppermint extract for vanilla. Tint a pale green, if desired.

    You'll want an Italian Buttercream Icing recipe, in which the sugar is melted before creaming it with the butter:

    If you put granulated sugar in a blender it will turn into castor sugar. If you put castor sugar into a blender it will turn into icing sugar.

    Hope this helps.
