This classic icing has a whipped marshmallow like taste and consistency. I like to use it on our easy Chocolate Snowball Valentine's Cake.


2 large egg whites
1 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup water
1 Teaspoon light corn syrup
1/4 Teaspoon cream of tartar
1 Teaspoon vanilla

Preparation / Directions:

With hand mixer, beat egg whites until foamy in the top of a double boiler, set about 2" from the simmering water. Beat in remaining ingredients and continue beating for about seven minutes (hence the name) or until temperature on a candy thermometer reaches 160° F and soft peaks form. Remove top of double boiler and continue to beat until stiff peaks form, about 4-5 minutes. Makes about 3 Cups (enough for 8" double layer cake)
