THE BEST ROYAL ICING RECIPE



The Best Royal Icing Recipe image

Learn what royal icing is and how to make our easy royal icing recipe with egg whites that can be used for sugar cookies, for icing gingerbread, and other sweets decorating. Plus, learn how to store royal icing, how long royal icing takes to dry, and how long it lasts.

Provided by Kristen Evans Dittami

Time 5m

Number Of Ingredients 3

2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 large egg white, or equivalent amount of dried egg whites
½ teaspoon water

Steps:

  • In a large bowl, combine the sugar, egg white, and water. Mix the ingredients together with a wooden spoon, until the icing is thickened and smooth, about 2 minutes.
  • The icing will keep up to 2 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Before using, beat it with a fork. Stir in very small amounts of water if it seems too thick. Royal icing can be thinned simply by adding water (or lemon juice), or thickened by adding confectioners' sugar. Add liquid or confectioners' sugar in small increments, such as 1/2 teaspoon at a time, and mix thoroughly before deciding whether to add more. Use thinner, spreadable royal icing for "flooding" cookies for background work, and thicker royal icing for "piping" lines and making rosettes. To make your royal icing colorful, a few drops of food coloring will saturate your royal icing with any color of the rainbow. Just remember that a little coloring goes a long way-if the color isn't as dark or saturated as you want, keep in mind that it will darken as the icing dries.

Categories     Dessert

Time 10m

Number Of Ingredients 4

4 cups Powdered Sugar (sifted)
3 tablespoons Meringue Powder
9 - 10 tablespoons Water (at room temperature)
Gel Food Coloring (optional)

Steps:

  • Sift the powdered sugar first by measuring it out and pouring it through a sifter or by pouring it into a fine-mesh sieve and shaking it through.
  • Using an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or a handheld mixer beat all of the icing ingredients together on a high speed for about 2 minutes. Check the icing by lifting the whisk to see if the icing drips back down and smooths easily back into the icing in the bowl. If it does the icing is ready. If the icing is too thick add more water 1 tablespoon at a time. If it's too thin add more powdered sugar 1 tablespoon at a time.

ROYAL ICING FOR SUGAR COOKIES



Royal Icing for Sugar Cookies image

If you're decorating cookies using our royal icing for sugar cookies and have a compromised immune system, we recommend instead using meringue powder, found in the baking aisle of most markets, instead of raw egg whites.

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Dessert & Treats Recipes

Yield Makes 2 1/3 cups

Number Of Ingredients 2

1 box confectioners' sugar (1 pound)
5 tablespoons meringue powder, or 2 large egg whites

Steps:

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar and meringue powder. Mixing on low speed, add a scant 1/2 cup water. For a thinner consistency, usually used for flooding, add more water. A thicker consistency is generally used for outlining and adding details. Mix until icing holds a ribbonlike trail on the surface of the mixture for 5 seconds when you raise the paddle.
