This quick-mix recipe makes enough "glue" to build and decorate a train or house. We've found that dried egg whites work best, but you can substitute fresh ones. (Note: eating raw egg whites is not recommended.)
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Beat the mixture on high speed until it's light and fluffy, about 5 to 6 minutes. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap until you're ready to use the icing. Makes 3 cups.
