Fluffy White Frosting

Let's see... how do I describe this stuff? Fluffy white clouds of sweetness!
1 cup sugar
3 egg whites
3 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a large heavy saucepan over low heat or double boiler over simmering water, combine the sugar, egg whites, water and cream of tartar. With a portable mixer, beat mixture on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating on low speed over low heat until frosting reaches 160°, about 8-10 minutes. Pour into a large bowl; add vanilla. Beat on high speed until frosting forms stiff peaks, about 7 minutes. Store in the refrigerator.
