Stir the unbeaten egg whites, sugar and water together in the top of a double boiler. Cook over briskly boiling water, beating with a rotary beater for 7 minutes or until icing looks fluffy and holds a soft, gentle shape.
Remove from boiling water, add vanilla essence and continue beating until icing holds definite peaks.
Spread between layers of cake and then frost the sides and top.
