Ornamental Icing

  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 cup confectioners sugar
  • 3 teaspoon lemon juice
Put the egg whites into a bowl, add a moderate amount of of the sugar and beat. Continue adding sugar until the mixture becomes too thick to beat well, and then add the lemon juice. Add the remainder of the sugar, and continue beating until the icing is thick enough to spread. Spread a thin layer over the cake and allow it to become hard to the touch. When this is dry, cover it with another layer to make a smooth surface, and add more sugar to the remaining icing until it is of a very stiff consistency. Color and flavor as desired, place in a pastry bag, and force through pastry tubes to make any desired designs.

Are you the next Rascal? We sure hope so. When you become a Rascal, you will join a group of excellent cooks. Cooks who go above and beyond, and look deep within themselves to redefine the boundaries of culinary success. Well that's a bit dramatic - our Rascals don't really do that. But they do have fun, share recipes, and enjoy excellent tools for organizing and printing recipes. So, we think it makes a lot of sense to join the Rascal. And we think it would be really poetic if you become the next Rascal. We hope you think the same thing!
Become a Rascal!   Share recipes with your family, organize your recipes, and have fun.
