Jack loves this icing and he puts it on just about anything his mum will let him :o)
250g of icing sugar
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 egg white
a drop of food colouring
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

Beat all the ingredients together until it's smooth and peaks will stand up in the icing when a knife is withdrawn from the mixture. 

Spread the icing over your favourite cake or biscuits and then cover with a damp cloth to prevent the icing from drying out.

You could even use this icing to make plain shop bought biscuits into a special treat.  You might like to sprinkle hundreds and thousands or chocolate hail onto the icing before it sets.
