Clever Judy Frosting
Found by Colleen and sent to the Old Recipe Detective Blog

The Request:
"Many years ago I used to make Clever Judy Frosting with my Grandmother - it was almost a whipped mocha consistency. The thing I remember most is that we would have to spell one another beating the frosting in a bowl over a bowl of ice until it set. The recipe is long gone. Hopefully you will be familiar with it. I would love to have it. Many thanks. Sharon"

*Editorís Note: While searching for another recipe, I found this recipe in a little pamphlet, published in 1943.  In those days they were less concerned about eggs and salmonella.  Click here to read more about egg safety.
