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.
