  • Boiled Icing: Dissolve and boil at high heat (240º), 2 cups granular sugar in ¾ cups water, ¼ cup corn syrup and small pinch salt. Dissolve and whip ⅜ cup (6 TBLS) meringue powder in one cup cold water: add 1 cup granular sugar while beating meringue mix: slowly add boiled syrup. Then whip at high speed until cool.

Product Questions & Answers

Hi there, I have a few questions regarding your meringue powder. For royal icing, the directions recommend using glycerin to make it soft. Does it dry hard enough, though, that you can stack the cookies? I'm aiming for a royal icing that dries firmly, but when bitten into, it's on the soft side. Also, once dried (with or without the glycerin), can the decorated cookies be frozen? Thank you! Tania

Answer: Just be sure not to use too much glycerin and the cookies will crust, but be soft to eat. Freezing will work well. Enjoy!
