i read somewhere that if you add glycerin to RI it helps it not be rock hard? can anyone who has tried that comment?

Hi cakey, greetings from Omaha Ne and Happy New Year, WOW is it cold here!!! Find your Recipes button here on CC. It should be at the top where you find the home page tag etc.. You can type in Royal Icing or Antonias74 or Tobas Glace or Alice's cookie icing and I think there's a few more to choose from as well. I would try to copy and paste the links on here for you, but I totally suck at this computer stuff. Maybe someone else will come on here and post you the links, but if all else fails I know you can find them under the above directions. Have fun with your cookies!!

The links to the how-to's and my recipe are listed below my signature here. icon_smile.gif

And yes, to add a bit of gloss (my icing is matte) people add a tablespoon or two of clear corn syrup to it.

I cannot say enough good things about Antonia74's royal icing recipe - it is my favorite recipe of all time!!

Thanks for sharing, Helen!

I have used a glaze which I love the taste of!

1 1/4 c powdered sugar
2 1/2 tsp corn syrup (sometimes I just use 1 Tbsp)
1-2 tsp vanilla (depending on how strong you want your flavor)
1/8 tsp lemon emulsion (or any other flavor you prefer - you can leave this out)
3 tsp water (this can vary depending on how thick you want it, and your area)

It tastes wonderful and if you just vary the consistency to either pipe or fill. It hardens, but is not as crunchy and hard as the royal, though I see in the posts above if you add the corn syrup it makes it softer - I may try that just to see how I like it! These are able to be stacked.
