Couldn't you just use egg whites?? I'm not really sure but I think it would work....I'd give it a try.

I used a butter cream frosting the other day when I made sugar cookies. It dried pretty hard. It should work well for gingerbread men.

4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup of butter, softened
3 Tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla
food coloring (optional)

Suzi......FYI I found this recipe this morning while surfing around. Is it similar to the one you used?

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe-Tools/Prin ... ervings=12

Ingredients

1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons milk
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
assorted food coloring

Directions

In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup.
Divide into separate bowls, and add food colorings to each to desired intensity. Dip cookies, or paint them with a brush.

yep thats pretty much it! Set up nice and hard too.... A little stiucky to pipe for the kids but a bigger tip probably would have helped. I love almond extract I put it in almost everything instead of vanilla :)
