White Icing/Frosting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am looking for an old timey white icing recipe.  This icing was very light, pure white, and would crack when it set.  I'm 61 and my Grandmother used to make it.  She would use it when she made a Banana Cake.  She would make thin layers of vanilla cake.  Then she would alternate fillings of a mashed banana mixture and the white icing between layers.  Then she would frost the top and sides with the icing.  It was so good.

I am looking for a very similar recipe ....except my mom's was not pure white!  Just slightly off white - and she used it on a banana nut cake.  Haven't been able to duplicate the cake or the icing yet........

Welcome to Cheftalk Grannykitty,

 

I am sure you can teach me a few things about baking....

 

When you wrote the words " and would crack when it set " it reminded me right away of boiled icing, it does the same thing. Could it be that ?

 

@ Gen : using the search bar there are some recipes for banana nut cake.
