My Royal Icing Recipe and How To Video can be found here!
Over the last 5 years, I have tried and tested numerous recipes. Some worked for me and some did not. There were recipes that tasted really good, but then they would spread while baking (and vice versa). In speaking with other bakers, recipes that they loved and claimed baked up perfect, would spread and were a completely different shape when I pulled the tray out of the oven!
It is all trial and error ... please enjoy my sugar cookie recipe here!
As far as royal icing goes... CONSISTENCY IS KEY! If you nail the consistency, you will get the perfect flood every time! I have a YouTube video that may help with this, it's called ROYAL ICING CONSISTENCIES.
