Best Gingerbread House Frosting

We tried several recipes for gingerbread house frosting but this one is by far the best. It dries quickly and holds the pieces together very well, that way the candy doesn’t “slide” down the sides & roof of the house as you’re decorating.

Gingerbread House Frosting:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 1/2 c. powdered/confectioners sugar
  • 2 T. lemon juice

Mix egg whites & powdered sugar to form a thick icing: thin with a little lemon juice if necessary. Use icing to glue the house together. Put remaining icing in a pastry bag fitted with a fine tip, and decorate accordingly.
