My mom and i used to decorate cakes for wedddings. She used this recipe all the time for the fine details used on the cakes. Her tip was to use a drop of blue food colouring to keep the icing a brilliant white.

This is the first time i tried royal icing n it turned out pretty good. i used it to decorate my cookies n the icing hardened well in the fridge. but smelled of raw eggs which was a turn off. even the guests noticed which was very embarrassing!

Royal icing is generally used to make decorations on cakes and to "cement" decorations together, and is not recommended for icing cakes. I did use this recipe as I was out of meringue powder and it turned out pretty decent.
