In a bowl with an electric mixer, whisk the egg white then gradually add in the icing sugar and whisk on low speed until smooth. You need to have a firm pipeable consistency. If it is too hard add a bit more egg white, if it is too soft add some more icing sugar.

Tansfer the icing to a piping bag. If it doesn't all fit, store the rest in an airtight container until you need it.
