  1. In a heavy saucepan bring corn syrup, sugar and water to a boil and remove from heat. With an electric mixer (preferably stationary) whip the eggs whites with a pinch of salt until stiff and glossy but not dry. Slowly, as you are beating the whites, pour the hot syrup and continue to beat constantly until frosting is light and fluffy and holds soft peaks; fold in vanilla.
