Birthday cake

They say “seven” but it’s really 8 minutes icing. The trick seems to be not to forget the water … like I did last time

in the top of a double boiler; 2x eggs whites, 1/2 cup water, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1t vanilla extract, 1/2 t salt, 1T light cornsyrup, mix for one minute and then mix on high until soft peaks form.

I’ve sent these two pictures off to be printed on 20 in square canvas for DH’s office. I’m very nervous about this. I hope they come out ‘presentable’.
