  • 2 cups (450 g) regular sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthways and seeds scraped out
  • A few drops food coloring

Put the egg whites, sugar and seeds from the vanilla bean into a large bowl.

 Transfer the mixture to the bowl of a freestanding electric mixer and beat on low speed for about 4 minutes.

Increase the speed and mix for another 3 minutes, or until the bowl no longer feels warm to the touch.

If you want the frosting to have a lovely pastel shade, add a drop or two of food coloring and mix for another minute.
