Liz's Royal Icing
The easiest royal icing recipe with products from the grocery store! No meringue powder needed!
- 2 lbs powdered sugar (sifted)
- 5 oz pasteurized egg whites (in the carton)
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (use clear if you want super white)
Sift the powdered sugar and cream of tartar into a mixing bowl, then add the eggs whites, and start whipping them together with the whisk attachment.
Mix on low to combine them without exploding sugar all over the place, then increase it for a couple of minutes. Add your vanilla extract, and whip until white, which might take another three minutes or so!
Make sure you store this icing in an air tight container! This is the consistency of thick royal icing, and is ready to be thinned as needed!
