Baking and decorating tips: Royal Icing

Royal Icing baking and saving tips:

• Save yourself some money and buy pasteurized eggs whites to make royal icing rather than dry meringue powder.  Savings can be up to $12! 

• Be sure to sift powdered sugar for royal icing to prevent lumps in icing. 

• Buy quality food coloring if you decorate a lot of cookies throughout the year. A little bit goes a long way with quality food dye.
