Royal Icing

Makes 1 serving


  • 3 ½ cups sifted powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsps meringue powder
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • ⅓ cup to ½ cup water


In a medium bowl, beat together powdered sugar, meringue powder, cream or tartar and water for 5 minutes or until fluffy and thick. Keep icing covered with plastic wrap. Tint as desired. For base layers of icing, stir in just enough water until icing spreads easily over cookies. For piped details, place icing in a pastry bag with thin tip.
