Yield: 1 cake
|2 \N||Egg yolks|

|2 tablespoons||Cold water|
|1 tablespoon||Lemon juice|

Place the egg yolks, cream of tartar, salt, water, lemon juice and sugar in the top of a double boiler. Place over boiling water (the upper pan should not touch the surface of the water) and beat with a rotary beater or electric mixer for about 7 minutes or until the mixture is thick and fluffy and holds its shape. Stir in the lemon rind. Spread on the cake. This icing is especially suitable for a white cake.
Makes enough for one 8-inch layer.
