Beth Anderson's Take
4 egg whites
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons water
2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
Pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Step 1
Mix all of the ingredients except for the vanilla and almond extracts in the top of a large double boiler; it must have at least an 8 to 10-cup capacity. Place over hot water on moderate heat. Beat with an electric mixer at high speed for 5 to 6 minutes, until the mixture stands in peaks when the beaters are lifted.

Step 2
Immediately, in order to stop the cooking, transfer to the large bowl of an electric mixer. Add the vanilla and almond extracts and beat at high speed for about 5 minutes more, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl almost continuously with a rubber spatula, until the mixture is smooth and very thick. Use immediately on the Coconut Layer Cake.
