Do you mean the Loran flavoring oils? I think you would need to use an awful lot of the flavoring to color your icing. I've used them before, and they didn't noticeably change the color.

I would think to tint the icing flavourings would work. With the RI as a friendly reminder, make sure the extracts do not have any oil in them. (I accidentally colored RI with the Wilton candy colors once, and learned quickly what a little oil will do to RI).

Why not flavor the cookies instead of the royal icing?
