White Mountain Frosting


This is a very good frosting. You may flavor it with any flavoring extract to suit your needs.

4 cups


  • 3 cups white sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar

  • 3 egg whites

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Combine sugar, water, and cream of tartar in a saucepan. Cook until candy thermometer reaches 238 degrees F (115 degrees C), or until syrup spins a long thread when dripped from a spoon.

  2. Beat egg whites until stiff. Pour a thin, slow stream of the syrup into egg whites, beating constantly until frosting stands in peaks. Stir in salt and vanilla to taste.
