I don't know whether it was the egg white in a carton that I used or the cream of tartar, but it has a very artificial taste to it, and it took absolutely forever to whip this up. Still it did not have the very stiff peaks that I knew it was supposed to have. My granny made boiled icing with a hand cranked mixer and I can't imagine her whipping for so long!
Also adding chocolate does not work - had to throw the first batch out, since it would not stiffen.
This is for a birthday cake - have a feeling I may scrap it off and go with a butter cream. Very disappointing.
