4 egg whites
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
3/4 cup butter, softened
1-1/2 cups milk

wax or parchment paper.

light and fluffy. Add sifted ingredients alternately with milk a small
amount at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Mix in
flavorings and set aside.

gradually, and continue beating only until meringue will hold up in soft
peaks and beat thoroughly into the cake batter. Spread evenly into
prepared cake pans.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes for the three 8" pans (30 to 35 minutes for
the two 9" cakes). Transfer to a rack and cool for 5 minutes, then run a
