Royal Icing

Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American


  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tbsp meringue powder
  • 6-10 tbsp water room temp


  • Using a whisk attachment, mix all the ingredients together on high speed for 5 minutes. The amount of water will vary; keep adding tbsp until the icing easily drizzles. (I don't even count how much water I use. I just keep adding until I see a smooth, drizzling consistency! Sometimes it can be as many as even 15 tbsp.)
