Preparation of Icing:

Put icing sugar in a bowl, add egg white and beat well, the more you beat, the better.
Then add the color you like and mix again – you can split your frosting between 2 bowls for two colors.
Fill one or two piping bags with your icing and decorate your cookies and then place them on a wire rack so the icing hardens.
