Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds powdered sugar, sifted, plus more if needed
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 2 egg whites
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Beat the powdered sugar, milk and egg whites with a mixer in a large bowl until thick and glossy. Add more powdered sugar if the icing seems too thin (the size of the eggs can affect consistency). Just play with it until it's right. The icing should be stiff enough to "stand still" when piped and not run.

Contains Raw Eggs: The Food Network Kitchen suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use shell eggs that have been treated to destroy salmonella, by pasteurization or another approved method.
