Royal Icing for Sugar Cookies

This is the Royal icing recipe my Wilton teacher gave me, I changed it a bit to be more of a flavor that people like.

Royal Icing for Sugar Cookies


  • 1lb powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbl meringue powder
  • 4 Tbl water
  • 2 Tbl vanilla flavoring
  • I found the vanilla sweetens up the frosting without giving it so much flavor it takes away from the cookies.


  1. Mix everything together on low (med if using a hand mixer) for 7-10 mins. I usually mix it until it is not shiny.
