My quite favourite Gingerbread House Icing – the best modest batch Royal Icing recipe for decorating cookies or holding gingerbread homes collectively!
I have previously given you my Very best Soft Lower Out Cookie recipe and my favored Buttercream recipe . Because I get tons of requests for my Royal Icing recipe I believed I would confess: I am somewhat of a Royal Icing newbie. I nonetheless feel awkward and uncertain when I’m creating it. Buttercream and I are best close friends but Royal Icing is a lot more like a Facebook acquaintance.
I phone this recipe “Small Batch Royal Icing” simply because I often do not have use for a ton of Royal Icing so I make just ample to fill two huge Wilton decorating bottles. But considering that I refer to it semi-often here I imagined I must let you know my preferred method.
Use royal icing when you want a smooth surface that dries hard. This is also the frosting that is employed to hold gingerbread homes with each other- it dries like glue. However if you flavor it correctly (lemon, almond, or vanilla, and so on.) it truly can taste good so don’t be afraid to try it. I make mine with meringue powder but some individuals use egg whites. (I am not listing a RI recipe employing egg whites right here since I have never created it that way.) I usually make WAY also considerably royal icing so this small batch is the answer for me.
