Desserts: Royal Icing

This recipe originally appeared on Sally’s Baking Addition.


  • 480 g confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 tbsp meringue powder
  • 9-10 tbsp water (room temperature)


Mix ingredents with a handheld mixer.

When you lift the beaters up, the icing that falls back into the bowl should smooth out in about 5-10 seconds. If it is too thick, add a little more water. If it is too thin, add a little more sugar.
