For people looking for a tasty decorating icing without raw eggs whites, try this (from The Complete Book of Baking by Pillsbury). In 2-qt saucepan, combine 3/4 Cup water and 1 Envelope unflavored gelatin; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in 3/4 Cup white granulated sugar; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes. Stir in 3/4 Cup powdered sugar; beat until foamy. Stir in 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1 teaspoon vanilla; beat at highest speed until very thick, about 10 minutes. If desired, divide among bowls and add food coloring. Spread or pipe frosting on cooled cookies. Let frosting set, about 2 hours, before storing. This is a great decorating icing; not as sticky snd difficult to handle at home as royal icing because there is no egg white.
