I like this recipe because it cooks the egg in the process.
- Boil sugar and water over low heat until syrup spins a thread. (or get a glass of water, drop syrup into the water, it's done when it solidifies immediately after. This is very important otherwise it won't work).
- Take out of the flame immediately otherwise it will turn brown.
- Pour very slowly onto stiffly beaten whites and beat until smooth and stiff enough to spread.
- Add flavoring.
- Spread on cake.
