                                                     Simple Recipe for Royal Icing

Mixing Royal Icing takes about an hour to an hour and a half to make so do this at night and store it inside the refrigerator, fully covered first with cling wrap (closely touching the icing so push it down), then cover with lid.

1 eggwhite

1/2 teaspoon vinegar

about 1 1/2 to 2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar

Mix the eggwhite and vinegar at low speed using your stand mixer

Slowly add 1 tablespoon at a time the sifted confectioner's sugar, completely mixing before adding the next tablespoon, at speed # 2 only. The bowl should be covered with a damp cloth, and constantly wipe the sides with a grease free spatula, then clean it with a second damp towel.

Mix until the royal icing is stiff, light and fluffy. The color will and should change midway through mixing, it will have an opaque glossy color. 

                                          Royal Icing class             P3,000.00       

                                                 August 6      September 5

Learn how to mix Royal Icing properly. Royal icing is hard to mix and if not done properly will be hard to pipe. Create flowers that will last for at least 2 years and sell.

What to bring to class?

=12 cupcakes 

=2 kitchen towels

=1 1/2 by 1 1/2 inch icing squares and 2 by 2 inch squares, you can use wax paper or parchment paper to cut the squares.

=disposable icing bags, or piping bags

=3 icing couplers

=extra container for your prepared icing flowers

=about 2-3 cups buttercream (recipe below), you can mix confectioner's sugar and your choice of butter or margarine, any recipe will do

=primary food coloring BLUE, RED and Yellow

*you will use the buttercream or fondant to cover the cupcakes ( store bought or home baked). If you don't want to use buttercream on your cupcakes and want fondant instead, then you are free to bring a ready made fondant.

                                              SIMPLE RECIPE FOR BUTTERCREAM

1 1/2 cups margarine or butter ( i love Magnolia Butterlicious, it costs less but has a buttery flavor)

1 pound or 4 cups sifted confectioner's sugar

1/2 tsp of clear vanilla or your choice of flavoring

Mix all ingredients until icing is light and fluffy. Frosting will be very pale and not grainy. Use low medium speed.



Take the Cake Baking lessons and the Cake decorating and that's all you need to learn. 

                                      The rest can be learned by practicing at home.
