Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks (7-10 minutes at low speed with a heavy-duty mixer, 10-12 minutes at high speed with a hand-held mixer).
Icing is now ready for use.
Keep all utensils completely grease-free for proper icing consistency.
When using large counter-top mixer, or for stiffer icing, use one tablespoon less water.
Thinned Royal Icing:
To thin for pouring, add one teaspoon water per cup of royal icing. Use grease-free spoon or spatula to stir slowly. Add 1/2 teaspoon water at a time until you reach proper consistency.
Makes about 3 cups of icing.
Adult supervision is required at all times.
