This is my basic background icing when icing cookies. It tastes fantastic and gives wonderful results. For example I will use this for the red and orange background icing for Halloween cookies and then use royal icing for faces and more intricate detail. Originally from Gerhard Jenne.
- Mix together to an even smooth consistency.
This couldn't get any simpler. Tasted wonderful too. I used the fresh lime juice in mine, Tasted superb on the lime cookies I made.
I thought this was a great icing. Incredibly simple to make, easy to adjust thickness or thinness - just add a little more sugar or a little more lemon juice. Tasted yummy (I thought) and gave me a wonderfully smooth, glassy finish when dried. I'd give 5 stars, except the boyfriend didn't like the taste at all, so it gets dinged for that. Thanks for sharing!
I used this on a lemon bundt cake I made. Made the cake very pretty and a touch of extra sweetness. Just what I was looking for with no dairy! Thank you Missy!
