  Makes 2 9-inch layer pans
Made famous long ago by cooks of the town and plantation mansions of South Carolina and Maryland. A Christmas delicacy there.
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
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
Other necessary recipes:
Rich White 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.

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.

Take about 1/3 of frosting and mix in the raisins, figs and walnuts. Filling should be thick enough to stay on cake.

can't find recipe needed from link
In this recipe the link that pops up for eggs when you put your mouse on the recipe link does NOT take you to the recipe. Also if you do a search for rich white cake which it says to use it just finds lady baltimore cake which is where you started to begin with. Very frustrating as I wanted to make this cake. Also the little info links that pop up when you scroll over links are VERY VERY annoying.
