1/3 Cup Water
1/4 Teaspoon Cream of Tarter
1 Cup White Sugar
2 Egg Whites
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
In a small sauce pan whisk together the water, sugar and cream of tarter. Heat over medium heat until the sugar has completely dissolved and the mixture starts to bubble slightly.
While the sugar is dissolving, using electric beaters whisk the egg whites and vanilla extract until soft peaks form. First the egg whites will get light and fluffy with many small bubbles. Continue whisking until the egg whites are white, have thickened and when you lift the beaters small peaks form and stay standing.
While continuing to beat with the electric mixer, slowly add in the sugar syrup while it is still warm. Continue to beat until frosting is white and fluffy. About 7-10 minutes of extra beating.
Frost cake or cupcakes or brownies, or cookies as desired.
