Place a pot with 1/2-1 cup water on stove to boil. Once water is boiling, place your glass bowl on top of the pot of boiling water to cook the eggs. With an electric mixer, mix the ingredients in the bowl while it is cooking. Mix constantly until creamy, do not leave standing. Once the mixture is creamy remove from heat. Fill a large bowl with ice cubes and place your bowl with the filling on top of the ice cubes.
