Sift the icing sugar, and put about half in a bowl. Put the egg whites and lemon juice in the bowl and mix everything with a mixer.
Gradually add the remaining icing sugar. The mass must be so strong that you can make a fine line without it runs.
Fill approx. 1/2 tbsp icing into a small piping bag and set aside. Dye the rest in brown and fill in about 2 tbsp. also in a small piping bag.
Dilute the remaining icing with water. It should so liquit that it runs flat when you put it on a cookie. Cover the icinig with a damp cloth and set aside.
