Anyone have a recipe for egg free royal icing?
1lb of powerder sugar, 3 tables spoons of meringue powder, 5 to 6 tablespoons of luke warm water ... Mix all dry first intill blended then add the water... Beat 7 to 10 min
Meringue powder is made from eggs. If you are avoiding because of an allergy I wouldn't use it. If you are avoiding because you are skeeved out by uncooked eggs it's a great choice.
From the web: "meringue powder is made of dried egg whites, sugar, and gum"

I should have said:
See this thread about eggless RI. http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-725090-vegan.html+royal+icing
For recipes, put "vegan royal icing" into Google--many links come up.
I was just sharing what I know.. It's better than the actual egg...
can you put left over royal icing in ice box?
One more thing, it has no flavor in it...do you guys put any flavor or you dont bec the sugar cookies has flavor huh? am i correct?
any advice and help would be appreciated.
I usually use a little vanilla extract in mine. I never have saved it. After I finish doing my cookies I usually dump what's left, so I don't know the answer to that.
I was told it could be put in the frig for up to 2 weeks
Is this an allergy thing? What do you want to use the royal for? I can't imagine eggless royal for stringwork or droplines, but maybe to do scrolls or something?
My experience, royal made with meringue powder does not keep or last, it starts to separate and crystalize.
Royal made the traditional way with egg whites, powdered sugar and cream of tarter does keep quite well in an air tight container or a zip lock (to keep it from drying out). It actually pipes better, your strings are stronger and the colors get more vibrant when you let it mature over night.
I fear no egg.
I keep RI made from meringue powder up to 2 weeks in airtight container on counter..I just remix with spatula, good as fresh...
Here is a vegan royal icing recipe: http://geekycakes.com/2015/04/28/vegan-royal-icing/
In Canada, I buy a soy based royal icing mix at the Bulk Barn. It works great.
The brand is Virgin Ice.
