Ingredients

2 large egg whites (or substitute powdered egg whites)

3 cups confectioners' sugar

1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. 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.
