Royal Icing for Biscuit Decorating
Royal icing for piping to decorate biscuits.
- 1 egg white
- 1 1/2 cup pure icing sugar (sifted)
In a bowl with an electric mixer, whisk the egg white then gradually add in the icing sugar and whisk on low speed until smooth. You need to have a firm pipeable consistency. If it is too hard add a bit more egg white, if it is too soft add some more icing sugar.
Tansfer the icing to a piping bag. If it doesn't all fit, store the rest in an airtight container until you need it.
||Pipe directly onto the biscuits and allow to set for 20 minutes. |
Low Chemical / Failsafe
- To make coloured icing add a few drops of Hoppers natural food colours (if tolerated).
- Add some carob of chocolate to the icing sugar before mixing in.
