Royal Icing


There are lots of different types of icing, but if you want to decorate biscuits, then this is the recipe for you. Royal icing is perfect for making beautiful designs and you can add food colouring to make loads of variations.

You'll need
250g Icing Sugar, Sifted
1 large Egg White
1 tsp lemon juice
Food Colouring

How to make
Put the icing sugar, egg white and lemon juice in large bowl and whisk for about 3-4 minutes.

You're looking to have the mixture resembling nice peaks without being solid. If the mix is like concrete you will need to add a few drops of boiling water likewise if its too runny you'll need to add a little more sifted icing sugar.

Its not completely unsalvageable unless is starts to turn from white to a dull grey colour. If this happens, you've mixed to hard and its just gonna crumble. Trust me!

Divide out the mixture into the number of bowls for the number of colours you wish to use. *You could use just the one colour if your making them for a party to fit a theme i.e. blue for a boys baby shower etc but I like to get colourful*

Add a little of the colouring and mix gently. Once you have the colour you want, fill an icing bag and you're good to go.
