|Egg whites||2 (Room Temperature)|
|Sifted icing sugar||2 1⁄4 Cup (36 tbs)|
|Cream of tartar||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
Combine all ingredients.
Beat with electric mixer 5 minutes or until very stiff.
While decorating, keep remaining frosting in bowl covered with damp cloth or waxed paper to prevent a crust from forming.
This frosting becomes very hard and is good for making flowers and leaves and writing names; they will hold their shape and the eggs can be wrapped and boxed.
