Storage of icing

I'd like to assemble our gingerbread house in the evening, to allow the structure to harden before my kids decorate it. Will the royal icing (2 egg whites/5 C icing sugar) keep overnight in an airtight container, such as a ziploc bag?

Icing Overnight

Yes, as long as no air can get to your icing it should be fine---though you may need to stir it up---I have heard that royal icing made with egg whites doesn't hold up as well as royal icing made with meringue powder, but give it a try.
