Just use fresh egg whites. I do this all the time:

2 large egg whites

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

3 cups Powdered Sugar

Yep, fresh egg whites is the way to go!

Here's another one for you:

3 large (room temp) egg whites
1lb powdered sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Beat eggwhites and cream of tartar to a soft peak. Add sugar gradually.

Def use 1/8 tsp cream of tartar for every egg white WHENEVER you are needing to whip egg whites!
