As I mentioned in my comment to mizkit , it went pretty well this time, although it got off to a scary start. Before I even commenced making the frosting, I removed the cooled, white layer cakes from the pans, and on the bottom of one pan, the residue formed -- I'm not kidding -- the face and ears of a bunny.

And a scowling one, no less.

It was intimidating, but I forged onward, and the frosting came out as close to "right" as it has so far. Not quite stiff and voluminous enough, but once spread on the cake and covered with coconut, it looked and tasted perfect.

Hope you all had a nice weekend!

That is deeply disturbing, yet very funny. :)

Would you share this frosting recipe? I'm all curious now. :)

sharing this recipe is a little like sharing smallpox in hopes the sharee becomes immune to it without perishing first.

My problem is, I don't really have my mother-in-law's recipe, just parts of it. I've found other recipes on the internet and in cookbooks, and I've blended them to the point of ridiculous.

Case in point: my mother-in-law's "partial" recipe seems to say that I should add cream of tartar during the boiling stage. But all the other recipes tell me to add it during the whipping stage.

So I divide the tsp of cream of tartar in half, and add part during each stage. I know it's wrong, but...

That said, if you really want the current version of the recipe, I'll be happy to share it -- but remember, (1) I built it a la Frankenstein and (2) it doesn't turn out right.
