Royal Icing

Difficulty: Beginner
Cuisine American
Keyword cookies, Misc.
Method No Bake
Total Time 12 minutes


  • Electric Hand Mixer


  • 3 Tbsp. Meringue Powder - 8 oz.
  • 4 cups Confectioner's Sugar - about 1 Lb.
  • 5 Tbsp. Warm Water - (See Notes)


  • Beat all ingredients together until icing forms peaks. 10-12 minutes at high speed with a hand-held mixer (7-10 minutes at low speed with a stand mixer,).


Keep all utensils completely grease-free for proper icing consistency.
Use 1 Tbsp. less water when using a Stand Mixer OR for Stiff Icing: 
Store Royal Icing in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks. Before reusing, re-whip until it’s back to the correct consistency.
Meringue Powder is a must for this recipe. Do not substitute with raw egg whites (which can be a food safety issue) or dried egg whites; neither will produce the same results as Meringue Powder.
