Ingredients

  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 3 cups Icing Sugar sifted
  • Food Colouring if desired

Method

  1. Whisk the two egg whites with the lemon juice until combined with electric beaters.
  2. Gradually add in sifted icing sugar on low speed until smooth.
  3. Add food colouring if desired and spread onto biscuit or use it to join together pieces of gingerbread.

Piping Instructions

  1. Spoon into a piping bag and use immediately.
  2. If you need to put the icing bag down for any period - wet down a cloth and place it over the end of the nozzle to stop the icing from drying out.
  3. Allow a couple of hours for the icing to set hard.
