Man do I hate making royal icing. I hardly ever do. Most of the cookies I make, I just work the designs around what colors are available in Betty Crocker cookie icing. But a friend of mine whose family ran a bakery posted some pics of cookies she had dipped in icing and they looked so lovely I thought I’d give it another try. Royal icing is a simple mix of egg whites, powdered sugar and extract or lemon juice. No big deal, right? Am I not the Master Of All Baked Goods? Do I not bleed icing?
