Fluffy Egg-White Frosting

Melissacake

This frosting is light and fluffy, and you can add food coloring to make it your or your friends’ favorite colors!  I recommend using a stand mixer instead of a hand mixer so you don’t have to hover over the bowl for 10 long minutes.  (Unless you’re trying to build your arm muscles.)
