Looks great! If you have the Better Homes and Gardens Red and White cookbook, there is a frosting called Fluffy White Frosting that would go perfectly with that! Oh wait! I found this one on Allrecipes that is the same ingredients we use! Hope it works for you.

Fluffy White Frosting

INGREDIENTS
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS
In a saucepan, stir together the sugar, water and cream of tartar. Cook over medium-high heat until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is bubbly.
In a medium mixing bowl, whip the egg whites and vanilla to soft peaks. Gradually add the sugar mixture while whipping constantly until stiff peaks form, about 7 to 10 minutes. Frost the cake of your choice.
