This works great when making Gingerbread houses or any other edible decorations that you want to make for the holidays or even if you want to make the sugar eggs...It is a Quick-Mix recipe enough to make a Gingerbread House and to decorate it with. I have found that dried egg whites work best, but you can substitute fresh ones. (Note: eating raw egg whites is not recommended.)

How to Make Royal Icing

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Beat the mixture on high speed until it's light and fluffy, about 5 to 6 minutes. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap until you're ready to use the icing. Makes 3 cups.
  2. Homemade Icing Bags
    These easy-to-use disposable bags help young engineers put icing right where they want it. To make one, fill a sandwich-size zip lock bag with icing, then snip 1/4 inch from one corner. Holding the bag at the top, squeeze icing through the hole.
