Here I will show you how to make a protein glaze. This glaze hardens well, but at the same time it turns out to be quite elastic. Use it to paint and cover cakes and other baked goods.
The glaze turns out to be quite thick and rich. If you need a thinner consistency, you can dilute the glaze with water. But here it is important not to overdo it with water and try to stir the glaze with gentle movements so that the foam does not settle.
Since the glaze is bright white, it is easy to paint it in any desired color and shade using food paint.

How to make "Protein Glaze"
Eggs need cold. If they have not been stored in the refrigerator, then send them there for at least 20 minutes. Separate the whites from the yolks. We need about 90 grams of protein, so it's best to measure it with a kitchen scale. You can make powdered sugar from granulated sugar by grinding it in a coffee grinder. But, if you have a store-bought powdered sugar, then it must be sieved. The quality of the icing directly determines whether our icing will whisk. Now that all the ingredients are prepared, combine the proteins and powdered sugar. Squeeze 5-7 drops of lemon into the same container. Begin to beat the future icing with a blender at a low speed. After a minute or two, turn on medium speed and beat the lather until soft peaks. The final step is to load the icing into a cooking bag or syringe. It is convenient to use these devices for painting. But,if you need to glaze a large area, it is best to use a spatula.
