 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2                    egg whites
    2      teaspoons     water
      1/8  teaspoon      cream of tartar
    3      cups          confectioners' sugar
 
 Using an electric mixer on high, beat the egg whites, water and cream of
 tartar until frothy.  Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until the
 mixture is of spreading consistency.  You may need to add more sugar.  The
 icing should be firm enough to hold a soft peak.  Cover with a damp towel to
 prevent from drying out.  May be stored in an airtight container for later
 use.
