For an Optional Edible Frosting - See
3 egg whites
1-1/2 pounds powered sugar
Food color (optional)
Because it uses raw eggs - it
should not be eaten.
Beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually beat in sugar until icing
reaches the desired consistency. The more you whip the icing the
fluffier it gets. Icing that is less fluffy is best for piping out
details, such as siding, roof or window designs; fluffier icing
makes good glue for holding the pieces of the house together. Add
food coloring. Immediately wrap and refrigerate leftovers.
