About this deal
To make each color, I used 1/2 cup of royal icing with the exact same amount of gel coloring for each brand’s icing. This way, I knew we’d be able to accurately compare the color results with controlled amounts of icing and coloring. Dissolve the sugar (and salt, if you're using it) in the boiling water, and cool to room temperature. Cake Frosting: Use Italian meringue buttercream as a classic frosting for layer cakes. You can spread it between the cake layers and on the outside for a smooth and velvety finish. Add some food coloring or decorations to match the theme or occasion.
Although using egg whites may take more time, it is even a better option than meringue powder because eggs are natural and have a tasty flavor.

The sugar should stream between the whisk and the edge of the bowl.ACTIWHITE is manufactured from specially treated fresh hen egg whites.

DIY ingredients are always amazing, aren’t they? Let’s see how you can make your own meringue powder right at your house. It is very easy to make. What you Need Prevent sugar crystallization– Once the sugar syrup comes to a boil – don’t shake the pot too much and work with caution. Any sugar crystal that may have formed on the sides of your pot will fall into the syrup and crystallize the syrup.
My buttercream is too buttery– Yes, unlike American buttercreams, meringue buttercreams are buttery. It’s essentially sweet whipped egg whites with butter. Light and fluffy in texture but yes, it is buttery and it’s ok if you don’t like it. Use a candy thermometer. It is important to get the sugar temperature right so you do need a thermometer. If you do not own a candy thermometer, I highly recommend making Swiss Meringue Buttercream SMBC. It is also a meringue buttercream with a more forgiving method. Once all the butter is in whip the mixture for another minute or two until you have a smooth and satin-like buttercream that is light and fluffy.Now that you have your royal icing recipe, don’t forget the cut-out sugar cookie recipe and basics for cookie decorating.
