    How come pictures don't print with the recipe any longer? I love to see the picture when I am cooking and to see as an example how it should look. So sad!

    Perfect royal icing! It is easy to decorate with. Not as stiff as other royal icings I’ve used before but it still hardens like a good royal icing should The idea of using meringue powder may be new to some people but I have a buttercream icing recipe that calls for it and I love that recipe too. Wilton makes it so you can find it online or where they sell cake decorating supplies.

    Great icing and contrary to popular belief, my gingerbread gal posted is NOT an image of my likeness. My hair is actually much shorter.

    What a great icing!!! This is THE royal icing to use for any of your decorating needs! It works perfectly. If you don't want to bite into an overly sweet cookie, just don't use too much or too thick of a layer of this icing to decorate your cookies.
