*g* You are so cute, Amanda! Thanks for the tutorial!
Very cute! Thanks for the tutorial. How long does it take for this icing to "cure"?
Amanda, the fact that you had your son sit with a dunce cap on his head makes me love you even more!!Your talent amazes me! Thanks for the tutorial. :)
Super cute & fun tutorial! Love how you incorporated your son!
AMANDA!!! that was SOOO fun!!! I know I don't want to be a royal icing dunce!! Thanks for the video!!
OMG…I was having one hell of a day but…guess what?...Not anymore. This was the funniest tutorial I’ve ever watched. Thank you so much for teaching us and for making us laugh during it.Have a nice day ;)Elle
Amanda...you had my husband and 11 y.o. interested in icing! That's saying something considering they are surrounded by it 24/7! ;)I only wish we lived closer so you could give me an in PERSON tutorial! You made it look so easy (and fun)! If your icing will help me make beautiful cookies like yours, I'm trying it!
I hope your son got compensated in cookies for his brilliant performance. He is as good as his mommy. The *walk-on* by little Audrey was priceless. She didn't even ask what you were doing. I guess they are so used to mommy doing what she does so well. Thanks for this entertaining and educational vlog.

Haha Great job Amanda! Made me chuckle while I learned :) I've used your icing recipe before and it was a hit.
What a great video, Amanda. I'm going to try out your way next time!
Great video, Amanda! Loved your easy way and your children being in it...
Hello I am currently making the icing right now, and it's really thick...even with the extra milk.
Amanda, this video was SO funny! I totally loved the sifting 'bit' and the dunce cap. You did a really great job and it was easy to follow and understand. I have such respect for busy moms like you who can get it all done, done well AND make it look easy! Can't wait to see your next one!
great video! i was wondering whose leg that was in the corner. :)
Love it!! I will definitely have to give that icing recipe a try!
lol, man you are so cool Amanda ;D love it!
I think I can do this! I've been so scared to try royal icing. Thanks for the tut!
great tutorial! Does it dry hard?
OK, the dunce in the corner? I almost fell off my chair laughing, Amanda.
Great job Amanda! Loved your vlog!
How fun! You did an awesome job Amanda!~Liz
Is the lemon necessary? I have a lemon tree out back but it seems like such a waste for me to use a lemon just for one drop.
I love your sense of humor and the kids "guest starring" - adorable! I'll try the icing!
To Chrisgelica:I make this fab frosting a lot and use almond extract instead. It tastes great, especially if you're using Amanda's cookie recipe!
Samantha: You can add as much milk as you need to get the consistency you want. The 1:1:1 is just a starting off point for the recipe. I have added a 1/4 cup of milk to get a really runny icing... just experiment! :)Dawn: The icing dries a hard but not for 3 days. At about the 2 day mark you should still be able to leave in imprint of your thumb by putting your thumb on the icing. But be warned the 2/3 day mark is when they taste THE BEST! :)Chrisgelica: The lemon is not for flavor necessarily, but to add some acidity to the sugar. This does NOT make the recipe taste lemon, but it DOES bring out the flavor in the sugar instead of just giving you a huge blast of sweet. It is totally not necessary... just a personal preference!Thanks for all the wonderfully kind words and thoughts guys... you are the sweetest!! (and you know that pun was intended)Blessings!Amanda
Loved this tutorial! What kind of color do you use? Gel, powder liquid? How do you make sure it's uniform color for when you spill in after outlining?
Love this!! I made the cookie jar for my mother-in-law!! Do you use decorating bags/tips? I tried a ziplock bag, but it was not so good. Can you PLEASE post a vlog of you decorating a cookie? Please!?Mine were ok but not like yours ;-)
Hey Crystal!Here's a post about NOT using baggies to decorate:http://bakeat350.blogspot.com/2010/03/this-does-not-work-for-me-wednesday.htmlDisposable piping bags are MUCH easier. You'll see a difference in your cookie decorating, I promise! :)
Love the video! I, too, want to see one of you decorating a cookie. I'm really new at this so this may sound like a dumb question. What do you use to add color to the icing? Food coloring, food coloring paste????? Also, do you measure the powdered sugar before you sift it? Does it matter?
So much fun! Thanks for the alternative icing, just for some variety:) What a good sport your little "dunce" was! :)
Thank you so much for this! I am a new "hardcore" baker. As in I have gone from baking yummy treats for the family for dessert to I want to learn everything there is to know about making, baking, and decorating! BRILLIANT! You are wonderful!Come to Idaho =)
Does the milk spoil that is in the icing?? Or does it last a long time at room temp? Does the sugar act as a preserve for the milk? Always wondered that!!!
I have used this recipe and used almond extract without the lemon. It worked perfectly! I did have to tweek the amount of milk, though. Mine dried to package/wrap/stack after 24 hours. Maybe depends of the humidity? Or thickness of the icing piped on?
Hi, I am from Hungary. I never headr of corn syruo before. What can I use instead of that?Does it last for days even with the milk in it?
Okay, I'm about a year late to the party but I must say I just love you!! Amanda you are a gem and I'm glad to see someone else who measures like it do (not that it EVER gets me in trouble!). I'm interested in trying your tasty recipe! ♥-K
Amanda,that was a great video, made it easy to follow. I can not wait for the next one. Well done!!!!
Please help!! My icing remains grainy though I sifted it and used powdered sugar (grinded granulated sugar at home). Adding more milk maked it liquidy but still grainy. =(
This is surely a very good blog, thanks a lot for sharing such nice information here.bubblegum casting
