HOW TO MAKE ROYAL ICING


HOW TO MAKE ROYAL ICING (MERINGUE)

Hi everyone, hope you have all been good. So it was my birthday and I wanted to make a chocolate cake and I wanted the frosting to be white so I decided to make royal icing. Here is the recipe, enjoy. I know it’s not glamorously frosted but I’m still experimenting with frosting cakes.

INGREDIENTS

2 egg whites

1 tbsp lemon

250g confectioner’s sugar (icing sugar)

PROCEDURE

1.      Using either a stand mixer or hand mixer, mix the egg white with lemon until foamy.

2.      Add the icing sugar while mixing until the mixture thickens up.

! Add 1 teaspoon of water to the icing if it is too thick or add more icing sugar if it is still runny.

! Royal icing dries up easily so don’t expose to air; Keep in an airtight container.

! You can a 1 tsp of flavor although flavour taints the white colour.

! Customize the colour by adding gel or powder colouring.

3.      Use royal icing to cover your cakes or other pasties.

4.      Enjoy.
