Tried and True “Icing Glue” Recipe

This recipe is a life-saver. You can easily change the consistency of the icing by adding little drops of water or pinches of icing sugar. It colors easily and thoroughly with food coloring and dries in the same color that it is when it’s wet. It dries quickly and firmly.




3 large egg whites (or 4 medium-small egg whites)

1/2 tbsp of cream of tartar powder

6 cups of icing sugar




Beat the eggs and the tartar powder together until foamy.

Add in sugar gradually and beat until smooth.

Put the icing in a bowl which can be sealed well so that it does not dry out.
