Royal Icing
Serves: 2 cups
  • 2½ cups plus 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons meringue powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ⅛ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, meringue powder, cream of tartar, and salt. Add ¼ cup water and lemon extract, whisking until combined. (Use whisk sparingly, as it causes bubbles in the icing. Switch to a spoon, if necessary.) Use immediately.
