AWhat do you use to thin your royal icing? Recently, I used lemon juice and it was great on my lemon cookies but I'm not sure how it would taste on plain or chocolate cookies. Just wondering what others use besides water and lemon juice.
Any particular reason why you want to use something else? I never use anything but water and it works very well for everything
AWhen I use water my royal icing has an odd taste. When I used the lemon juice I didn't taste it as much.
ANo I didn't use boiled water.
I always use water.
1cup icing + 1/2- 2 tsp water = outlining
1cup icing + 1-3 tsp water = flooding
Hi - I use a lemony royal icing on almost all type of sugar cookies and it always provides a nice taste as you take the first bite! I use a few tablespoons of lemon juicy when I start whipping the icing, and water to thin it out.
