I'm glad I made this first as practice for Easter. It didn't turn out as expected. I remember this frosting turning out well with a cookbook recipe version several times in the past. Decide to try the All Recipes one instead. It was a bit soft for an end product. I wanted it to stand up in peaks. In all fairness, that's what you see in the sample photo, a soft frosting. I beat it for 7 minutes over the double boiler and another 7 minutes off, trying to build volume and texture. When I make it again this week, I will add another egg white to the mix and hope that will tighten it up as well, especially since I want to top with coconut. I may just dig out the cookbook recipe which has never failed. Also, it frosted the top and sides of a cake. Adding between layers would have been skimpy. The flavor is great. Oh, and one more thing I've noticed in the past is the vanilla changes the color a bit. It's no longer perfectly white. You might want to skip that part.
