~ Royal Icing ~Ingredients:
- 4 cups icing sugar (otherwise known as powdered, or confectioners sugar)
- 3 tablespoons meringue powder
- 5-8 tablespoons water
First, you'll want to use a mixer for this- preferably a stand mixer, but a hand mixer will work too. You'll have to whip the icing for 8-10 minutes, so you don't want to use a spoon. :)
Pour the powdered sugar into the bowl of your mixer.
Add the meringue powder.
Turn the mixer onto low, then add about 4 tablespoons of water.
At this point the icing is a good consistency to use for making roses, or as glue to hold gingerbread houses together and such. :) Royal icing doesn't taste as good as buttercream, so I wouldn't suggest using it to frost an entire cake. Tomorrow I'll show y'all a little about flooding and coloring royal icing. I hope y'all are enjoying this Christmas cookie series! :)
I hope you try this recipe! If you do I'd love to see pictures! :) Or you can pin this recipe and save it for later! Be sure to come back soon! And a very Merry Christmas! ♥Katie
