Antonia74’s Royal icing

July 2, 2015

This fantastic, and easy to make recipe is from Cake Central's Antonia74. He can be found on:


3/4 cups Warm Water

5 tbsp Meringue Powder

1 tsp Cream of Tartar

2 1/4 lbs Powdered Icing


In a mixer bowl, pour in the warm water and the meringue powder. Then mix them with a whisk by hand until frothy, which should be about 30 seconds

Add cream of tartar and whisk for another 30 seconds

Pour in all of the icing sugar at once and put the bowl on a mixer

Using the paddle attachment, start the mixer on the LOWEST speed.

Mix for 10 minutes. Icing will start becoming thick and creamy

Cover the bowl with a dampened tea-towel to prevent any crusting and drying

Tint it with the food coloring of your choice, and thin the icing with small amounts of warm water to reach the desired consistency
