royal icing recipe
In a stand mixer combine sugar and meringue powder. Add 8 tablespoons of water, using the whisk attachment, beat for 1 minute on low speed. Scrape down sides of the bowl. Continue to add water one tablespoon at a time until the icing slowly drizzles from the whisk when lifted.
Once prepared - if the icing is too hard, add more water one drop at a time. Too runny, add more icing sugar one teaspoon at a time.
Separate the icing into smaller bowls and add desired food coloring.
You will need light blue, light purple, light pink, light peach and white.
Mix well. Scoop the icing into piping bags or icing bottles. Cover unused icing with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator. Alternatively, store it in an airtight container.
Line around the edge of the design with icing and fill the middle. Use a toothpick to poke bubbles or direct icing into holes.
Allow each design area to dry before moving on. The icing should completely dry, at room temperature for at least four hours, before adding piping details to the top. Happy decorating!
