Royal Icing is known for its crisp white color and thick consistency that makes it the perfect decorative icing for making beautiful and creative cookies.
Today I thought I would share a classic recipe for Royal Icing. A little less common than other icings, Royal icing is typically used for more decorative purposes like Christmas Cookies or wedding cakes. Today though, I just paired it with a shortbread cookie and it was the perfect combo.
I kept it simple today and left the icing a crisp white color, but it’s easy to add food coloring in any color to decorate your cookies in a fun way. These are great for making cookies in special, cute shapes for birthday parties or other special occasions and seem to be all the rage these days.
You know I tend to be a little more effortless in my baking and decorating, so just remember you’ll need a little bit of patience to pull off this look but it’s totally doable and worth a try to decorate your own. There are tons of tutorials online as well that will give you some tips for being the best decorator you can be.
I’d love to see what you created with your Royal Icing!
