I usually make Antonia74 cookie/royal icing but it makes quite a bit.I need royal icing to glue a fondant bow together so I don't need a full batch.Does anyone have a recipe that will make a smaller amount?

Yeah..I have tried that before but for some reasons it didn't turn out.It was too soft and I tried to add more sugar but it just wasn't the right consistency..Almost melty..sorts of...

when i need a small amount of royal i scoop out 2 cups of pwd sugar, 1.5 tbsp meringue powder and 2 - 3 tbsp water and mix by hand, it takes alot of mixing but works.

Melty is either too much water or not mixed long enough. I always start low on the water anyway, since the humidity here plays into it.

If the icing feels thick but melts down or doesn't hold it's shape it needs to be beat longer.
