2 egg whites
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
¼ cup light corn syrup
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add sugar gradually, and beat until frosting stands in stiff peaks. Add syrup and beat 1 minute.
If color is desired, separate frosting into bowls and add drops of food coloring, stir well.
Add a few drops of water if a thinner frosting is desired. Cover frosting with damp paper towel when not in use.
