Ingredients
  Egg white 1
  Salt 1 Dash
  Cream of tartar 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Vanilla 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Confectioners sugar 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs) (sifted)
Directions

Beat the egg white, salt, and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form (use an electric mixer).
Add the vanilla; then gradually beat in just enough confectioners' sugar so that the icing is stiff but still thin enough to push through a 1/16-inch opening of a decorating tube tip.
Cover with a damp cloth until ready to use.
