To make this Great Royal Icing Recipe You’ll need the following ingredients:
- 5 tbsp meringue powder
- 1 tbsp light corn syrup
- 1 tsp CLEAR vanilla extract
- 1 cup water
- 2 lbs powdered sugar
In a mixer, combine meringue powder, light corn syrup, clear vanilla extract, and water.
Using a hand whisk, mix ingredients until the mixture becomes foamy.
Add the powdered sugar to the mixture.
Hand whisk the mixture until the powdered sugar is incorporated and looks soupy. (I do this step so the powdered sugar doesn’t fly everywhere when I start the mixer in the next step.)
Attach the paddle attachment and beat mixture on medium-high for about 4-6 minutes.
The mixture should begin to thicken and whiten.
Mix until the icing forms peaks. (If you remove the paddle and wiggle it, the icing should kind of jiggle but the peaks will remain intact.)
