Royal Icing Recipes

Mortar

¼          cup                    Egg Whites (approximately 2 egg whites)
3 ½       cups                  Confectioner’s Sugar (16.3 oz) (462 grams)
½          teaspoon             Gum Arabic Powder (optional)
¼          teaspoon             Lemon Juice
¼          teaspoon             Vanilla Extract

– Look for stiff peaks.
– If you prefer to color your mortar brown (instead of using cocoa powder) I recommend Americolor Chocolate Brown Soft Gel Paste Food Color.
– For all other colors, I recommend Chefmaster Liqua-gel Color.

Chocolate Mortar

¼          cup                    Egg Whites (approximately 2 egg whites)
2           cups                  Confectioner’s Sugar (9.3 oz) (264 grams)

½          teaspoon             Gum Arabic Powder (optional)
¼          teaspoon             Lemon Juice
¼          teaspoon             Vanilla Extract

– Look for stiff peaks.
– I recommend Ghirardelli 100% unsweetened cocoa powder.
– Hershey’s cocoa powder will not yield a natural chocolate color or flavor.

Piping Icing

¼          cup                    Egg Whites (approximately 2 egg whites)
3           cups                  Confectioner’s Sugar (14 oz) (396 grams)

Thick Flood Icing

for harlequin designs and the dot candy effect

¼          cup                    Egg Whites (approximately 2 egg whites)
2 ½       cups                  Confectioner’s Sugar (11.6 oz) (330 grams)
¼          teaspoon             Lemon Juice
¼          teaspoon             Vanilla Extract

– Look for a hard ribbon that disappears within 10 seconds if it’s shaken.


Loose Flood Icing

for the dripping effect, ruffles, glazing, and filling contained areas

¼          cup                    Egg Whites (approximately 4 egg whites)
2           cups                  Confectioner’s Sugar (9.3 oz) (264 grams)
¼          teaspoon             Lemon Juice
¼          teaspoon             Vanilla Extract

– Look for a soft ribbon that disappears within 10 seconds.
