Royal Icing Cement

There are two forms of royal icing - one used for just for decorating, the other used as "cement" for gluing your gingerbread house together. Try this cement version and you won't be disappointed.

Difficulty Level

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 3 1/2 ounces warm water
  • 1 pound powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Instructions

  1. Beat the meringue powder and water together.
     
  2. Stir in sugar and cream of tartar, beat vigorously for 3-4 minutes. This dries rather quickly and very hard, so cover the container with a damp paper towel when you aren't using it.
