This Royal Icing Recipe is the easiest one that you will find on the web today. There’s no way that you can mess this icing up. If it turns out too runny, add more powdered sugar. If it’s not moveable, add a dash of water.
First. I know my picture sucks. I was doing this with the two girls so that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. I got to decorate ONE, yes, ONE cookie! Wasn’t that nice of them?!?
I’ve always admired my friends who decorate those fancy cookies for birthday parties. Last Christmas, I tried my hand and I wasn’t that great. But, I was ok with that. I’m not perfect at everything and I’ll be the first to admit the things I suck at!
Now while I may not be a Royal Icing perfectionist I have the Sugar Cookie Recipe down pat as well as the Royal Icing Recipe.
Royal Icing Recipe Notes
I have found messing with the recipe that you need the corn syrup. As much as I hate to admit it, using honey gives the icing a weird taste that my kids didn’t like….and they love honey. Plus, the corn syrup adds a shine to the icing that honey just can’t do. I know some of you are going to scold me on this one, but whatever. I’m ready to take the heat!
