FILLING

Put on to cook two cups of sugar and half a cup of water. Boil without stirring until it jellies when dropped into cold water. Then pour over stiffly beaten whites of three eggs, then stir into icing a small quantity of citron, currants, dates, figs, raisins, almonds, English walnuts (all chopped fine) and grated cocoanut, leaving out a similar quantity to be put on top of cake when iced.
