Royal Icing

Author Becky's Mindful Kitchen


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ~4 c powdered sugar
  • pinch salt
  • pinch cream of tarter


  1. In a stand mixer beat egg whites vanilla, salt and cream of tarter until frothy.  Mix in powdered sugar slowly until it reaches the consistency you like.  Thicker allows more control with piping while thinner icing works well when drizzling over cakes and buns.
