(Upper pan should not touch surface of water.) Beat with rotary beater for 7 minutes, or with an electric beater for 4 minutes, or until icing is stiff enough to stand in peaks.
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
If any graininess appears, add a few drops of lemon juice and continue beating until smooth.
Spread on cake immediately.
Makes enough for sides and top of two 8-inch layers.
For a 3-layer cake, double the recipe.
