Best Royal Icing Recipe


Owl Sugar Cookies with Royal IcingDirections

  1. Combine all ingredients in bowl of stand mixer, beat on low speed for 7-10 minutes or until icing begins to form stiff peaks.
  2. Divide your icing into appropriate portions to color for your project.
  3. Add a small amount of gel food coloring to create each color, stirring until coloring is completely blended.
  4. To create icing for flooding, place a small amount of colored icing into a bowl and begin adding water ½ tsp to a time until you reach the proper consistency.
  5. You want the icing to be thin enough to spread easily but not too watery. A good test is to drizzle a small amount off the end of your spoon and watch how long it takes for the drizzled icing to blend back into the bowl of icing. It should blend back in within approximately 10 seconds.

    I love sugar cookies and these are so cute. You did an excellent job in decorating these. I make sugar cookies with my grandkids each year.

    I tried decorating sugar cookies a few times – I have a thing for cookie cutters, and I’ve gotten some that the shape isn’t that recognizable unless you decorate it. But it is harder than I thought! You make it look so easy, I would love to try this – great job!!!
