Royal Icing Recipe for Making Gingerbread Houses

Royal Icing Cement
(NOT EDIBLE)

For Gingerbread Houses
This Recipe is NON-EDIBLE...
For an Optional Edible Frosting - See Almost Buttercream

Ingredients:

3 egg whites
1-1/2 pounds powered sugar
Food color (optional)

Directions:

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.
