Royal Icing Cakes

  • It is little hard to make this icing compared to other types of icing.

  • for making 3 cups of royal icing we need

  • 3 tabs. of meringue powder(you can even substitute it with egg whites)
    1lb. of confectioners' sugar.
    5-6 tbs. of luke warm water.
    Place confectioners sugar and meringue powder in a bowl,mix at low speed with a hand mixer until blended. Add water and mix for 8 min.on low speed until the icing loses its sheer(shining).to prevent drying always cover it with a tight lid or damp cloth. You can store the icing in an airtight container for 2 weeks.

  • I have made these flowers and birds with royal icing in before and when they are dried for 3 days, I have placed them on the cake.
