Icing Polka Dots

Icing Polka Dots


3 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
2 egg whites, beaten


In a bowl, sift together confectioners’ sugar and cream of tartar. Using electric mixer, beat in 2 beaten egg whites for about 5 minutes or until mixture is thick enough to hold its shape.

Instead of piping directly onto the cupcakes, scoop the icing into a piping bag and using a small round tip, pipe dots of different sizes onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave them overnight to harden and then carefully pick them up with a thin spatula and place them wherever you like on your cake.

Variation: make letters or numbers, etc. Print out the letters on a sheet of paper and slide it under the parchment sheet.. it will serve as a guide for you to follow with your piping bag. And if you mess up, just start over again!
