Royal Icing Made with Egg White Powder : a video tutorial

You know how I'm always adding a disclaimer to my tutorials that I don't know what I'm doing?  Well, let me introduce you to Gail of One Tough Cookie in New York City.  Gail is the REAL DEAL and she knows what she is doing!


Gail makes cookies and cakes like this:

Go ahead, gasp!  Is that the most darling thing ever?!?

And this cookie was on Rachael Ray's show.  You know how she does "snack of the day?"  Gail made these cookies, Rachael KISSED HERS and said it was her favorite snack of the day EVER!

Now Gail shows us how to make royal icing without meringue powder, but with egg white powder.  I'm definitely trying this soon!

Run on over and check out One Tough Cookie to see some of the cutest cookies ever!!!  And if you'd like to read more about the difference between egg white powder and meringue powder, click here to the One Tough Cookie blog.  Thank you, Gail!

Well, I didn't think it was possible to find someone who makes educational AND funny video tutorials like you Bridget. Gail and you are a baker's match made in heaven. Thank you Gail and thank you Bridget. Not only did I learn about using egg white powder for royal icing but I also found out that lemon juice can stop colour running. Best 4 minutes and 25 seconds I've spent today :)

How cute is this video and how cute is Gail???? Adorable. I love hearing how she mixes up every batch of royal icing to match the cookies she is making for that day. Priceless. Cookie artists are the real deal. Nobody can match what they do, and a very rare few have the determination to see it through to excellence. Bravo Gail! You are the "real deal"!!!

Hello! I´m from Spain.

I am spanish and I was fascinated with your blog. Recently that I have discovered this fantastic world of the decoration of cookies and I have been caught in it. I love it very much.

I am learning a lot, but here in Spain is not very typical make this type of cookies, which is why I have to seek out all the recipes, especially the glasa. I have seen your video and I liked the texture of yours.

I do not understand english, that is why you wanted to ask, please, whether it is possible that you copy me the ingredients of the recipe of the royal icing that you used in this video, so that you can try to prepare myself. You what I would be grateful. Thank you for your attention.

Un besote, mi solete.

Vamosalculete.

Hi, I did try this recipe, meringue powder is not a common thing in my country, so I bought egg white powder. The icing was great to work, my cookies were beautiful, the icing dries fast, but it turns so hard to bite...
Ddo you know what am i doing wrong?
Thank you
