In the top of a double boiler combine sugar, cold water, egg whites, corn syrup (or cream of tartar) and a dash of salt. Beat 30 seconds with mixer on low speed. Place over boiling water (upper pan should not touch water). Cook about 7 minutes while beating constantly on high speed of electric mixer or until frosting forms stiff peaks. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Beat 2-3 minutes more or until spreading consistency.
