Icing the Cake

Icing the Rich Seed Cake

Icing the Rich Seed Cake

An icing was made by beating the egg whites not used in the Rich Seed Cake receipt (see previous post) until stiff.  Sugar, that has been made like powder in a marble mortar and pestle, is then added until it is the right consistency.  A spoonful of orange-flower water is added for flavor.  Directly after removing the seed cakes from the oven, the icing is placed on the cakes.
