A - Z Blogging Challenge - I



This is my go to icing when I want to frost a chocolate layer cake...




  “I”



Icing

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
dash of salt

Combine above ingredients in a saucepan and bring to boil, stirring until sugar has dissolved.  Remove from heat. 

2 egg whites (unbeaten and placed in a large mixing bowl)
1 tsp. vanilla

Very, very slowly pour hot syrup into the egg whites, beating constantly with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.  (Approximately 7 minutes).  Beat in the vanilla.  Frosts tops and sides of  two 8" or  9" layers or one 10" tube cake.
