- For the White Frosting:
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
- 1 cup water
- 3 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- For the Fruit Nut Filling:
- About 1/3 of the frosting
- 1/3 cup raisins
- 1/3 cup figs, cut in strips

FOR THE CAKE:
Make the recipe for Rich White Cake in layers. Spread both cooled layers with Fruit-Nut filling. Cover with a thin layer of White Frosting. Put layers together. Then cover top and sides of cake with the remaining White Frosting.
FOR THE WHITE FROSTING:
Mix sugar, corn syrup and water together and boil to 242 degrees F, or until an 8-inch thread spins from spoon. Pour slowly, beating constantly, over 3 egg whites, beaten stiff. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Continue beating with spoon until mixture is fluffy and will hold its shape.
FOR THE FRUIT NUT FILLING:
Take about 1/3 of frosting and mix in the raisins, figs and walnuts. Filling should be thick enough to stay on cake.
