On vacation in Gatlinburg, I purchased an old timey cookbook called "A Taste Of The Past" by Phyllis Connor. Each recipe has notes about the family history of the recipe and this one is from Elizabeth Sparks, author of N. C. And Old Salem Cookery. I am including the frosting recipe she recommended, but you can use your favorite if you are uneasy about using the egg whites. This recipe is from a 90 year old woman who got the recipe from her mother. Talk about surviving the test of time! How did she live to such a ripe old age eating uncooked eggs? ;)
