Royal Icing

Method

To two and a half pounds of icing sugar put seven or eight whites of fresh eggs and half a tablespoonful of lemon juice strained, work for fifteen to twenty minutes with a clean wooden spoon into a smooth thick paste, and put on to the cake with a clean palette knife, occasionally dipping this in cold water. Cakes should be covered one day and ornamented the next day.
