Anne's Awesome "Glass" Royal Icing
This is a traditional royal icing, but the consistency is perfect for a Martha-style cookie! They are just BEAUTIFUL and the icing hardens but is not rock hard... ahhhhh perfection. Eat your heart out Martha! To add colors, transfer a small amount of royal icing from the base recipe into a different bowl and mix in Wilton® gel icing colors.
Cover bowl with a damp cloth while icing is not in use. If you want to store the royal icing for later use, place it in a covered container with plastic wrap directly on top of the icing. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks
To use as a glaze, stir in a few drops of lemon juice until it is the right consistency.
