Burnt Sugar Frosting

13 Jan

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup boiling sugar

3/4 cup butter

2 egg yolks

6 cups powdered sugar

Pour sugar into a large, heavy skillet. Heat slowly, stirring occasionally, until sugar melts and starts to turn a dark golden color. Very gradually add water; stirring constantly. Continue cooking until sugar dissolves. Boil 2 minutes. Set aside and cool completely.

Cream butter in a large bowl until creamy. Add egg yolks; blend thoroughly. Add sugar syrup and powdered sugar to creamed mixture; beat until smooth.
