Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites (or substitute powdered egg whites)
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

Combine the egg whites and confectioners' sugar in a medium-size mixing bowl and whip with an electric mixer on medium speed until opaque and shiny, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the lemon juice, this will thin out the icing. Beat for another couple of minutes until you reach the right spreading consistency for the cupcakes.

Consumption of raw or undercooked eggs, shellfish and meat may increase the risk of foodborne illness.
