I normally make my royal icing with egg whites as I like quite thick and solid icing to make a 'snow scene' on the top of my Christmas cake. As pg this year I'm avoiding the raw egg. Have tried other recipes in the past but have not been sucessful. Does anyone have a tried and tested recipe for icing without the egg white that won't just slide off the top of the cake?
Highheels I'm in the same boat, would always make royal icing from scratch - don't really like the ready rolled icing you get in supermarkets. And not sure I can get powdered egg white in my local shops and definately not venturing out in the snow to the supermarkets!
