I would like to make some royal icing, but I don't need a whole lot. Maybe 1 or 2 cups of it. Does anyone have a scaled down recipe for royal icing? I have powdered egg whites that I would use for it.

Also, I remember seeing a website where you have to pay a membership in order to get access to video clips of cake decorating. But they had a free video showing how they made royal icing heart cages, where the lady piped royal icing onto the back side of a heart shape mini pans and once they set up, they formed cages. Does anyone know of the link to this?

It's Not sure where the link to the link to the heart cakes are but I watched it when it came out.

Hi, I didn't see a response to this and I am wondering the same thing. I only need a little Royal Icing for some piping. Does anyone know a good small batch recipe for this? Thanks!!!!

Certainly icon_smile.gif Just cut the ingredients in 1/2......
I don't have a royal recipe at hand's reach but if it calls for 2/3 cups of something......use 1/3; if it calls for 3/4 use 1/2 with a tablespoon removed etc. I've done it many, many times.

I just made a full batch. All the recipes I had found had a weight for the PS and I don't have a scale. I was hoping for a "cups" measurement. Thank you though!!!

Now that you have lots of leftover put it to useicon_smile.gif
Make dropflowers - straight star & swirled.
Make daffodils - whether or not you think so it *will* soon be spring (& Easter) icon_smile.gif
Make ColorFlo plaques. All shapes & sizes. Use them for the message on cakes.

For future knowledge: if you look on the bag it usually tells you how many cups there are per pound.......if I remember right it's 4 1/2 cups = one pound. It's close enough and if you find the icing a bit thin add a few more tablespoons....too thick add a very little bit of liquid.
