ROYAL ICING RECIPE from http://MarthaStewart.com
- 1 box confectioners' sugar (1 pound)
- 5 tablespoons meringue powder or 2 large egg whites
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine sugar and meringue powder. Mixing on low speed, add a scant 1/2 cup water. For a thinner consistency, usually used for flooding, add more water. A thicker consistency is generally used for outlining and adding details. Mix until icing holds a ribbonlike trail on the surface of the mixture for 5 seconds when you raise the paddle.
Here is a quick, ONE MINUTE video tutorial on how I made the marbleized design using royal icing.
A fun tradition during the cookie exchange is decorating an ugly sweater cookie.
Yep...those are definitely ugly. And I mean that in the nicest possible way.
Happy Holiday Baking!
