I've watched every youtube and every website blog But i cant seem to get a good recipe for royal icing or maybe im doing something wrong, Mine last night wasn't only a cream color and super thin. I tried adding more powered sugar and still super thin and looked more like cinnabun icing.
I tried a no meringue recipe but that wasn't it.
someone please help
I'm trying to make the paint your own cookies for my sons birthday. and I need to make thick black for boarders and white for the base.
thanks! i actually saw that on youtube last night. hehe
i didnt use that one because i couldn't figure out how to make half that recipe since I only need maybe two dozen cookies if that. :(
Just cut the ingredient measurements in half.
1lb powdered sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tarter
5 1/2 T of egg whites
There ya go! Get decorating!
so excited i felt so silly trying to convert everything, do you think i could use that meringue powder instead of egg-whites or its all the same thing>?
i appreciate your fast responses hehe
She has directions for using meringue powder as well as how to adjust the thickness for different applications in the link I gave you. I've never tried it but I'm sure it's fine, she's the expert in that area.
Good luck :)
you can try Wiltons RI recipe.
1lb powdered sugar
3Tbs Meringue powder
5Tbs warm water
Mix on low until incorporated then turn your mixer up to High for about 5 minutes. It should double in size and be really creamy. I usually start with 4TBS of warm water (warm is key) then add a few drops at a time umtil I get the consistency I need.
I would hold back a couple TBS of the final mixture to make black then add water a little at a time until you get a flowing consistency for the white I like 8-10 second icing.
thanks bunches !!!!
Do you think these recipes can be used with an old school two metal prong hand mixer?
i unfortunately don't have that nice kitchen aid one, too expensive lol
I've made my royal icing with a hand mixer many times. You just have to mix it a lot longer. Try on High setting 7-10 mins, this gives a stiff RI, see the flowers on a wedding cake I just did, nice edges on them, no drooping :)
ahh i see those look so nice!
the icing im trying to make is the same as these i want to make that white backround, someone mentioned i need t oget white food coloring i didnt know that exsisted.
