"I received this recipe from a professional baker. I prefer to use this instead of a regular royal icing recipe with egg whites. It hardens nicely and is glossy rather than matte like regular royal icing. Use almond, orange, or lemon extract, whatever you prefer."

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Stir warm water, corn syrup, and almond extract together in a small bowl until corn syrup and extract have dissolved. Place confectioners' sugar into a separate bowl and add liquid ingredients. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until royal icing is smooth. Store in a lidded container for up to a week; stir thoroughly before using.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • For thick icing, which you will need for outlining and details, add more sugar until icing is quite thick. Icing can be thinned with a few drops of water to make a glaze for filling in outlines or dipping cookies.
  • Icing hardens into a shiny glaze quickly. Keep stirring your bowl of icing as you work with it.
