Flavored Royal Frosting

I was making a birthday cake for my uncle when I decided to add flavored to a royal frosting recipe. This is what I cam up with

Flavored Royal Frosting

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Meringue Powder
  • 1 lb. (4 cups) confectioners’ sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons warm water*
  • 1/2 to a whole package of Jello any flavor.

Instructions

  1. For stiffer icing, use 1 tablespoon less water
  2. Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks
  3. I used a whole package of Cherry Jello mix and it was a little gritty, So I would suggest a smaller dose.

This is just a suggestion--bring the water called for in the recipe to boiling, add 1 tablespoon of Jello to the boiling water, stirring until it dissolves. Allow it to cool to lukewarm (at room temp. putting it in the fridge would make it congeal) then proceed with the recipe. If this is not enough flavor, the next time you might try a bit more until the flavor is right for you. Good luck and thanks for sharing your recipe. ml

Hmmmm.....what if we used a Kool Aid as aspose to Jello?? ITs a bit sour or you could get the sweetened one, but with all the sugar being used I don't see why this would not work and plus kool aid is not gritty at all. I'm going to try it this weekend and see how it turns out.

I have not tried kool aid in Royal frosting but I always different flavored kool aids in my regular frosting it is a little tart but not grainy and does not delute the frosting. If I was to use jello I would suggested and delute in the hot water called for and then cool.

Could you dissolve the jello mix in the warm water or do you need to wait till the end to add flavor? Also does the jello mix change the color much?
