Pour into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  2. For frosting, in a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, egg whites, water, corn syrup and cream of tartar. With a portable mixer, beat mixture on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating on low over low heat until a candy thermometer reads 160°, about 5 minutes. Pour into the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer; add extract. Beat on high until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes. Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake. Yield: 12 servings.
