Royal Icing

20200125_140707

I am always trying to improve my recipes and my icing for my Empire Biscuits just wasn’t right, so I decided it needed to be a bit harder and went for Royal Icing. Turned out this is much better as it goes hard pretty quick. Good if you want to decorate them.

Makes enough for a 20cm Cake or 12 biscuits.

400g Icing Sugar

2 egg whites or egg white powder

1/2 tsp water

  1. Using a whisk, bring the egg whites to a frothy consistency
  2. A little at a time spoon in the icing sugar (& yes it WILL go everywhere, this was my kitchen worktop after….lol)    20200125_143514
  3. Add the little water and whisk until you get stiff peaks.                                        20200125_140707
  4. Now you are ready to use. At this point you can use food colouring and colour to decorate your biscuits of cake.

I made some Scottish Empire Biscuits using my trusty Recipe.
