Royal Icing Recipe
  1. In a mixer, mix meringue powder, mild corn syrup, clear vanilla extract, and
  2. Utilizing a hand whisk, combine substances till the combination turns into foamy.
  3. Add the powdered sugar to the combination.
  4. Hand whisk the mixture until the powdered sugar is incorporated and looks soupy. (I do this step so the powdered sugar doesn’t fly everywhere when I start the mixer in the next step.)
  5. Attach the paddle attachment and beat mixture on medium-high for about 4-6 minutes.
  6. The mixture should begin to thicken and whiten.
  7. Mix until the icing forms peaks. (If you remove the paddle and wiggle it, the icing should kind of jiggle but the peaks will remain intact.)
  8. Scrape the sides of the bowl and gather the icing with a rubber spatula.
  9. Cover the top with plastic wrap touching the icing surface. Be sure to cover the edges of the icing. Any exposure to air will dry out the icing.
  10. Cover the bowl with a damp kitchen towel. This prevents little dry crusties of icing from forming and getting into your icing, which would clog your icing tips when you try to decorate.
