About Royal IcingITS MAKING A BIG COME BACK IN CAKE DECORATING.

ROOM TEMPERATURE EGG WHITES CREATE BETTER VOLUME AND A MUCH STONGER ICING.

ACETIC ACID MAKES THE ICING SET HARDER, ALSO MAKES IT WHITER.

ADDING A DROP OF BLUE COLOR WILL MAKE THE ICING SEEM WHITER.

Things to KnowHUMIDITY WILL EFFECT THE WAY THE ICING DRYS. (THIS IS A NIGHTMARE!)

ADD A LITTLE GUM TRAGACANTH FOR ELASTICITYAND A LITTLE GLUCOSE WILL HELP MAKE THE ICING STRETCH.

POWDERED ALBUMEN MAKES A BETTER ROYAL ICING, BECAUSE IT IS VERY CONSISTENT

DIFFICULT WITH FRESH EGG WHITES

DO TO THE VARIATION IN EGG SIZES AND THE WATER CONTENT.Things to KnowIF POSSIBLE USE 6XX SUGAR WITHOUT CORNSTARCH / REQUIRES MORE MOISTURE TO GET THE RIGHT CONSISTENCY.

GLYCERIN /GLYCERINE / GLYCEROL SLOWS DOWN THE DRYING PROCESS, MAKING IT EASIER TO CUT / ONE (1) TEASPOON PER POUND OF ROYAL ICING.

NEVER ADD GLYCERIN TO A RUN OUT ICING OR AN ICING THAT IS GOING TO BE USED TO MAKES FLOWERS / WILL NOT DRY.

FOR FINE STRING WORK MIX BY HAND.

USE AN EYE DROPPER TO ADD COLOR / SO THE SAME SHADE CAN BE REPEATED

IT TAKES THREE COATS OF ROYAL ICING TO COVER A MARZIPAN CAKE / SOFT PEAK FOR THE FIRST COAT, ADD WATER AND SOFTEN FOR THE SECOND COAT AND SOFTEN AGAIN FOR THE THIRD COAT. (LET DRY OVER NIGHT IN BETWEEN EACH COAT
