I am going to be making some sugar cookies for a co-worker. I've never done this before and I need a stackable frosting but not so hard you break your teeth. Also, if you have advice please feel free to pass it along. Thanks. I'm not getting paid, just my pride is at stake. icon_smile.gif

The two most popular cookie icings are Toba Garrett's Glace' and the Antonia74 Royal Icing. It's a matter of preference. There are great things to say about both.

I mentioned those two because they were the first examples I could think of using those icings (of course, Antonia74 after all it is her icing!). But there are so many more talented cookie people here. Here are a few more:
