I made ths for my christmas cookies, It came out great. I didn't know about the meringue powder until my niece said she uses it in her cake frosting and it would harden. That I needed to feel out how much to use.Well your never to old to learn, I'm 73 and still learning. Merry Christmas.
This is a perfect simple royal icing. Extracts can be added to give flavour, or use lemon or orange juice instead of water.
The amount is more than enough to ice a large batch of sugar or gingerbread cookies :)
