Let's Make It
Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl with electric mixer on high speed until blended.
Add powdered sugar gradually, beating on low speed until well blended after each addition. Beat on high speed 5 min. or until stiff peaks form.
Prepared icing must be kept covered at all times to prevent hardening.
Make it Easy
Icing can be prepared ahead of time. Prepare as directed, then place in medium bowl; place plastic wrap directly on surface of icing. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Beat with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form just before using.
