Royal Icing
What's your Take?

This quick-mix recipe makes enough "glue" to build and decorate a train or house. We've found that dried egg whites work best, but you can substitute fresh ones. (Note: eating raw egg whites is not recommended.)

What you'll need

  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons dried pasteurized egg whites, prepared according to the package directions (or 4 fresh whites)
  • 6 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

How to make it

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Beat the mixture on high speed until it's light and fluffy, about 5 to 6 minutes. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap until you're ready to use the icing. Makes 3 cups.

    Homemade Icing Bags
    These easy-to-use disposable bags help young engineers put icing right where they want it. To make one, fill a sandwich-size ziplock bag with icing, then snip 1/4 inch from one corner. Holding the bag at the top, squeeze icing through the hole.
