Directions

  1. Combine the egg whites, sugar, corn syrup, water, cream of tartar, and salt in the top of a double boiler over water that is at a hard boil. Start beating right away with a beater until the mixture stands in stiff peaks. Remove from heat and add vanilla or your favorite flavoring and keep beating until it is thick enough to spread easily.

This icing tasted pretty good - warning! Spread the icing as soon as you make it, because it really firmsup. Any attempt to soften it will ruin it. It only took 3 seconds of heat to turn the whoe batch into liquid.

This is the most incredible frosing I have ever tasted! I am a huge fan of merangue, so this is a real hit. My whole family LOVED it. My 16 year old brother who doesn't cook, wanted me to show him how to make it so he can whip up a batch in case I'm not around. :)Whoever came up with this is brilliant!!!
