This cake was ordered and enjoyed after ample breakfasts in a crowded diner in Moncton, NB, this summer. The monsieur was intrigued by the description in the menu so we ordered it to the amusement of the waitress, who admitted to eating the icing alone; that is, sans cake.
Boiled icing has the texture of marshmallow fluff, and this one was light and very sweet with lots of vanilla. It also had an agreeable icing:cake ratio of at least 2:1. It was gone in mere minutes.
