Royal Icing

Royal Icing is easy to make and very useful to decorate cookies.

Sorry, I forgot to take pictures this time. I shall definitely add it next time.


Icing Sugar – 2 cups

Meringue pw – 1.5 tbsp

Vanilla or Lemon Extract – 1/4 tsp

Warm Water – 1/4 cup


  • Whisk the icing sugar and meringue pw together in a bowl.
  • Add water as well as the extract and beat on high speed until glossy and stiff peaks have formed.
  • Add more water or icing sugar if needed to get to the right consistency.
  • I have used flood consistency which means that the icing falls of from the beater in the form of a ribbon.
  • Use immediately or transfer to an airtight container to prevent hardening.
