    About this recipe: This is my go-to recipe for decorating gingerbread men, Christmas cookies and cakes; it works wonderfully and has a beautiful smooth finish. For a thicker consistency, add more icing sugar. Add food colouring or flavour extracts if desired.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 24 

    • 450g icing sugar
    • 2 egg whites
    • 4 tablespoons water, or as needed

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Beat sugar and egg whites in a large bowl using an electric mixer on low speed until evenly combined and shiny, about 3 minutes. Add the water gradually, beating on medium-high until icing is smooth and the desired consistency, about 5 minutes.

    Note

    You can mix the icing by hand using a wooden spoon if preferred. Add the icing sugar gradually, mixing well after each addition until it is well incorporated with the egg whites.

    Note

    Use or store in the fridge for up to 2 days if covered with clingfilm.
