Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 2 large
    egg whites
  • 2 tsp
    lemon juice, fresh
  • 3-4 c
    confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tsp
    milk, whole

How to Make Royal Icing

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large mixing bowl add the separated egg whites, and 2 tsp lemon juice. Add the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Mix on medium speed until well blended.
  2. For piping I add all four cups of sugar, and blend until stiff glossy peaks form that do not disappear into the bowl after 3 second count. If using for "flooding" or filling I only add 3 cups.
  3. To add coloring I recommend using only gel food colors as they add brilliant color without thinning your frosting.
  4. If you have thickened the frosting too much add the milk a small amount at a time until you achieve the consistency you're looking for.
