Recipe for icing that is solid and white

Usually icing is prepared with powdered sugar and a little water or lemon juice. That’s usually fine for a cake, too. But when it comes to putting a gingerbread house together, it gets a little tricky. This frosting doesn’t hold up as well and doesn’t look as nice white.

A firm white consistency is obtained with egg whites and powdered sugar. If the creation is then eaten, however, it is critical, since the egg whites were not baked, so it is better to use protein powder, which is also used, for example, for macarons or meringues. In this recipe, there is a sugar glaze that is guaranteed to last and is great for decorative patterns.

Since this frosting sets quickly, it should be covered with a kitchen towel. Then place cling film or a suitable lid on the bowl. Work the frosting all at once, a little at a time.
