In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
1 ½ cups sugar
1/3 cup cold water
2 egg whites
2 teaspoon light corn syrup OR ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
In the top of a double boiler, combine the sugar, water, egg whites, corn syrup or cream of tartar and the salt. Beat with an electric mixer set at low speed for 30 seconds, then set the pan over boiling water (the pan bottom shouldnt touch the water). Beating at high speed, cook the frosting for about seven minutes, or until its stiff and glossy. Remove from the heat, add the vanilla and beat two more minutes.
