ingredients

directions

  • Combine sugar, water and cream of tartar in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves.
  • Cook over medium heat until syrup reaches 230 degrees, or until it spins a thread.
  • Beat egg yolks until light and lemon-colored. Gradually beat in syrup until the mixture is stiff and almost white.
  • Cut butter into very small pieces and gradually beat into the egg mixture with an electric mixer until the frosting is smooth and creamy.
  • Flavor with brandy. Chill until the mixture is firm enough to spread.
  • This makes enough to frost 2 9-inch layers of cake.
