    1. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff then gradually sift in the icing sugar until the mixture is glossy and thick. Add the lemon juice, baking glycerine and a very small amount of food colouring (1 or 2 drops to start). A little will go a very long way, so add very slowly until desired colour is reached. If you would like a thicker icing, use a little more icing sugar. Use or store in the fridge for up to 2 days if covered with cling film.

    Food colouring

    You can use liquid or gels for this recipe, but be sure to add just a single drop at a time until you reach your desired colour as they are very concentrated.
