How to Make Royal Icing
1In 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.
2For 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.
3To add coloring I recommend using only gel food colors as they add brilliant color without thinning your frosting.
4If 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.
