There are many recipes for frosting. We can make it in the simplest version, using only powdered sugar and water. However, this option does not allow us to achieve a truly aesthetic effect, which will also satisfy us with taste.
Lemon icing is a slight modification of the classic icing recipe. In this variant, you replace water with squeezed lemon juice. This will give it a slightly sour flavor, making it perfect as a topping for very sweet cakes and pies. During the holiday season, you can also use orange juice
To half a cup of sifted powdered sugar add about 4, 5 tablespoons of lemon juice. Blend thoroughly to a smooth paste. The finished icing should be glossy and not too flowing.
The name is taken in this case for a reason. It is the true king among icings. It always looks great and is the perfect decoration for cakes, cookies and desserts. Whisk two egg whites with about 200 g powdered sugar into a stiff mass. You can add a tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of potato flour. Mix until a smooth mass is formed. The resulting frosting is really white and strongly opaque, not like its lemon counterpart – translucent. If you want, you can also add food coloring to it and you will get a colorful icing.
