From the kitchen of Ann Marie Barkwell.  This is from
my 1974
Betty Crocker Cookbook.  This is a cooked
cake frosting that has a marshmallow like flavor.  
Frosts with big beautiful peaks.
In a small saucepan combine:
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c light corn syrup
2 Tbsp water
Cover.  Heat to rolling boil over med heat.
Remove cover & boil rapidly, without stirring, to 242
degrees on a candy thermometer.

As mixture boils, beat:
2 egg whites (1/4 c)
Beat until stiff peaks form.

Pour hot syrup very slowly in a thin stream into the
beaten egg whites, beating constantly on med speed.
Beat on high speed until stiff peaks form.
Add:
1 tsp vanilla
Beat up to 1 minute more.

Fills  & frosts 2 9" layers or a 13x9 cake.
