To make the cake
Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites on medium high speed about 1 to 2 minutes, until stiff but not dry. Reduce the speed to low and add the cream of tartar, the remaining sugar, and the vanilla. Use a spatula to slowly fold the flour mixture into the eggs, a little at a time, stirring gently.
Pour the batter evenly into two ungreased cake pans. For a change of pace, use one standard 8 or 9-inch cake pan and one smaller 5” cake pan. Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes (a little less for the smaller cake), or until the cake springs back when touched in the center. Gently remove the cake pans from the oven and transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely. While the cake is cooling, make the icing.
