How to Make White Icing

You can use white icing to cover baked goods such as cupcakes, cookies, cakes, and other desserts. It’s also a great ingredient to tint with food coloring for decorative purposes.

Royal Icing (also known as egg white icing) is used for decorating cakes, gingerbread houses, and other sweet treats. It’s a simple mixture of egg whites, icing sugar, and some flavoring or coloring. It can be used as a smooth covering or in sharp peaks, and it has many uses, from decorating Christmas cakes to adding decorations to gingerbread houses.

To make royal icing, you’ll need a mixing bowl and a whisk. Start by beating the egg whites with a mixer until stiff but not dry. Add the icing sugar gradually, a tablespoon at a time, until it’s thick enough to hold its shape. You should be able to lift the whisk and see ribbons of icing fall back into the bowl, which tells you that the mixture is ready.

Once you’ve reached your desired consistency, transfer about 1/3 of the mixture to another bowl and keep separate. The remaining 2/3 of the icing will be your flood icing, which you’ll need for any large piping jobs that you have.

Depending on how thick or thin you want your icing, you can add more milk or powdered sugar to it. Once the icing is thick enough, you can then mix in the food coloring for more color options and variety.

Light Icing: To make a light icing, you’ll need to add low-fat milk and vanilla extract to the powdered sugar. The small amount of milk stabilizes the sugar, so you don’t have to worry about your icing being overly sweet.

This recipe makes enough icing for 18 cupcakes, or the outside of one 10-inch layer cake. It can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Glaze Icing: This glaze is perfect for drizzling over pound cakes, bundt cakes, cinnamon rolls, sugar cookies, and other baked goods. It’s easy to prepare and only takes a few minutes to mix up.

It’s also a good way to add some zest or juice to a baked dessert. Try using lemon or orange zest in your glaze.

You can also try blending in some fresh fruit juice to get some added flavor. Just be sure to let the juice or extract sit in the mixture for about 15 minutes before adding it to the icing.

The result is a creamy, flavored, and drizzle-able glaze that can be used on any dessert you’d like. It’s an excellent alternative to buttercream frosting.

This icing is perfect for covering cake and can be tinted with food coloring to achieve different shades of yellow, blue, purple, green, or other colors. It’s also a great base for other decorations, such as sprinkles and candy canes.

This simple icing is easy to make and can be used in any baked dish you prefer. It’s also an excellent alternative to buttercream frosting, as it doesn’t contain any dairy products.
