Bride's Frosting (aka. Marshmallow Frosting)


3 cups sugar
1 cup water
6 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large, non-glass bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. In a heavy sauce pan, bring water and sugar to a boil stirring constantly. Continue to let mixture boil until it reaches a soft-ball stage (234 to 240 degrees F.) Slowly add mixture to egg whites while beating with electric mixer at a medium speed. After all of the syrup mixture is incorporated, add vanilla. Continue mixing until frosting cools. You can speed up the cooling mixture by putting bowl inside a larger bowl with ice while mixing. When icing is completely cool, generously frost your favorite cake.
