This frosting can be flavored with lemon, orange, peppermint or other flavoring. * 1 cup sugar * tablespoon light corn syrup * 1/8 teaspoon salt * 6 tablespoons water * 1 egg white, stiffly beaten * 1 teaspoon vanilla * cup margarine or butter * package confectioners' powdered sugar In small bowl, beat 1 egg white until stiff but not dry. In large saucepan, cook sugar, syrup, salt and water over low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cover 2 to 3 minutes to dissolve sugar crystals on sides of pan. Uncover. Continue to cook until soft-ball stage (236 degrees on candy thermometer) is reached. Remove from heat. Gradually add hot syrup to beaten egg whites, beating consistently with electric mixer.
