I always use meringue powder to make royal icing for decorations that are almost always eaten. I wanted to use the wilton color flow mix because I heard it was harder and dried shinier. I noticed the color flow ingredients don't include sugar, but if I make it like I make RI with meringue powder, powdered sugar, and water, is it sweet?
Any advice? I really would love to have a shinier and stronger decoration, but I want it to taste good (I like the taste of RI with meringue powder)
Thanks for any help or suggestions!
You do mix the color flow like you do the meringue powder in royal icing. 1lb powdered sugar, 2 Tbls. color mix and then water until the consistency you desire is found. At least that is how I do it. Someone else may have better advice.
Thanks! Do you know if it tastes the same as when made with meringue powder?
I like it. But then, if it has sugar I will eat it.
Me too! I was worried it might not be sweet enough since there is no sugar in the color flow ingredients, but it is in the meringue powder. thanks!
