  • 1 pound confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup whipping-quality pasteurized egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 tablespoon water, if needed


  1. Beat sugar, whites, and cream of tartar with a mixer on low speed until combined, about 3 minutes. Increase speed to high, and beat until thick and glossy, 7 to 10 minutes. If glue thickens, mix in the water to loosen.
