Would make this again.
I loved this recipe! Although, It should be notes when using meringue powder it takes more water than 2 TBS. I started with that and added until it looked almost like deflated marshmallow fluff. But it turned out well and it took on the consistancy I was looking for. 5 stars

I like the look of royal icing, but, also, think it is too hard. I make a similar glossy icing. I use 2 c powdered sugar, 2 - 3 T milk (depending on the humidity), 1/4 tsp. almond extract for bland cookie dough (less for doughs that taste well on their own)and paste coloring. This icing flows through a squeeze bottle, keeps to an outline while easily filling in large areas and tastes superb. I get great comments on it. The only problem is that about the third day the icing begins to discolor, and, refrigerating makes this worse. You can also use vanilla extract, but, the almond seems to be a bigger hit.

Although this icing makes for pretty decorating, it dries too hard and crunchy. It actually hurt my teeth to bite into it. I have found that Toba Garret's glace icing is much more compatible with my decorating needs. It dries solid and stackable, yet chewy. I think royal icing should be used for nonedible items such as cookie ornaments and gingerbread houses. 2 stars

Would make this again.
I made this for the spicy gingerbread cookie recipe and it worked very well. I lined the cookies with the recipe as is and flooded them with a thinned version of the same. To thin the icing, I just added water in very small incriments until icing was the consistancy of paint. I used a small round tip for the lining and a small flat tip for the flooding. Using the small flat tip gave me better control over the flow. 5 stars
