One Cup Royal Icing
We all have our favorite royal icing recipes, but sometimes they just don’t scale down right when you only need a little.This recipe makes a mini batch, perfect for doing a small batch of cookies, string work accents or a quick session of piping practice.
- 2 cups 10x confectioner’s sugar, sifted
- 1 tablespoon meringue powder
- Pinch of cream of tartar
- 3-4 tablespoons water
Ensure that all your tools are very clean and grease free before starting.
Combine confectioner’s sugar, meringue powder and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Slowly add water until a sticky ball has formed, and then add water by the drop until a glue-like consistency is reached.
Beat on the lowest speed for 7-10 minutes.
For thinner icing, add more water a drop at a time until desired consistency is reached.
For flavored icing, substitute 1 teaspoon of water for a clear flavored extract.
