This is a family heirloom recipe. I most recently used this with Mirjam's "Ultimate Chocolate Cake"---with the filling she has in her recipe. This is just so good..........

  3. Heat till sugar dissolves and bubbles appear at edge.
  4. Whip whites, salt and tartar till nearly stiff.
  5. Pour hot syrup into whites, whipping constantly.

This is a very easy frosting that has a super good, fluffy sweet taste. Make sure you add the syrup very slowly in a thin stream to the egg whites! I used this to frost a chocolate sheet cake that dissapeared very quickly! Thanks melismak!

This is my favorite white fluffy frosting recipe! Extremely Low fat, no cholesterol..... lots of sugars but I used 1/2 granulated Splenda & 1/2 sugar to cut down a bit and it still turned out great!
