Royal icing recipe

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3 cups powdered sugar

Whip the egg whites until they hold their shape. (This usually takes about 5 minutes on high.) Then add in your cream of tartar and powdered sugar. Mix and blend well. Divide into three…dye one red and one blue and leave one white.
