Is it OK to flavor Antonia's royal icing recipe with almond flavoring? I assume it should be OK as long as you don't use an oil based..., right?
I added a teaspoon of almond extract to mine and it was fine.
I've added a variety of flavored extracts with no problem.
I always add clear vanilla to mine - I don't like the smell of plain RI for some reason.
I didn't add flavouring suggestions to my recipe because I buy a brand of meringue powder that has vanilla powder right in it. Not having used the Wilton brand before, I didn't realize that they ALL don't have flavouring built right in.
Use whatever flavour extract you'd like, but do be careful of using any oil-based extract. Oil and royal icing aren't best friends! It can cause problems in the consistency of your icing and/or the drying time...I'm not saying it's impossible, just that it doesn't dry the same way.
where do you find m-powder with flavoring already in it?
