Method

Mix ¼ lb, or ½ glass, sugar, ½ egg white, and several drops lemon juice until the mixture whitens and thickens. Fold a sheet of writing paper into a tube, fill it with this mixture, and cut off the tip of the tube so that the opening is as thick as a shoelace. Take whatever drawing you wish, and follow the design, pressing out the icing, which will begin to harden immediately. Fill any gaps with fruits, berries, candied peel, etc.
