  1. In a saucepan, stir together the white sugar, cream of tartar and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook without stirring until the temperature is between 223 and 234 degrees F (106 to 112 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dripped from a spoon can spin a long thread.
  2. When the syrup comes to the proper temperature, remove from heat, and stir in confectioners' sugar about 1/2 cup at a time until the icing is thick enough to coat a metal spoon. Test by pouring over a small piece of cake. Adjust the amount of confectioners' sugar as needed to get a good pouring consistency. Use while warm, or reheat over simmering water. Keep covered with plastic wrap when not in use to prevent a crust from forming on the top.

I ended up making 2 batches of this frosting (which I would actually label as an "icing", since it is so thin) because I figured one batch for 48 servings would be enough for 36 1.5" x 1.5" peti...

This icing is way too thick to use as is written. I used only 1 cup of confectioners sugar instead of the 1 1/2 cups and it was still too thick. There is no way you can pour this over the cake...

This recipie simply did not work.

This recipe was a thin runny mess. I had to take lots of step to attempt to thicken it and nothing worked. I've been cooking and baking for a while now and I've made similar frosting that turn...

It didn't turn out AT ALL. It was a brown color, and tasted like pure powdered sugar.
