Basic Frosting

2 large egg whites
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
Start beating egg whites in heat-safe bowl with hand mixer until frothy.  Place over pan of simmering water on stove, keep heat low.  Continue beating while adding other ingredients, touch bowl to make sure that temperature stays just warm.  After 5 minutes frosting should begin to come together and get fluffy.  Or, in my case, this will happen on the fourth try.
