    Really Easy Fluffy White Frosting

    Source of Recipe

    Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook 1984 edition

    Recipe Introduction

    This is like Seven Minute Frosting, but MUCH easier no double boiler, no thermometer. Gooey, glossy and good! I usually double this recipe if I am frosting a 2 layer cake, because I like the frosting thick, plus there is usually someone around who will lick the bowl for me!

    List of Ingredients

    1 c. sugar
    t. cream of tartar
    2 egg whites
    1 t. vanilla


    In a saucepan combine sugar, cream of tartar, 1/3 c. water and a dash of salt. Cook and stir until bubbly and sugar dissolves. In a mixer bowl combine egg whites and vanilla. Add sugar syrup VERY slowly to unbeaten egg whites while beating constantly at high speed of electric mixer about 7 minutes or until stiff peaks form.

    Frosts tops and sides of two 8 9 layer cakes.
