This recipe only makes 1 cup of royal icing, perfect for when you only need a little for string work, writing, etc.
  • 2 cups 10x confectioner’s sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon meringue powder
  • Pinch of cream of tartar
  • 3-4 tablespoons water
Ensure that all your tools are very clean and grease free before starting.
Combine confectioner’s sugar, meringue powder and cream of tartar  in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Slowly add water until a sticky ball has formed, and then add water by the drop until a glue-like consistency is reached.
Beat on the lowest speed for 7-10 minutes.
For thinner icing, add more water a drop at a time until desired consistency is reached.
For flavored icing, substitute 1 teaspoon of water for a clear flavored extract.
