  • Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl with electric mixer on high speed until blended.
  • Add powdered sugar gradually, beating on low speed until well blended after each addition. Beat on high speed 5 min. or until stiff peaks form.


Prepared icing must be kept covered at all times to prevent hardening.

Make it Easy

Icing can be prepared ahead of time. Prepare as directed, then place in medium bowl; place plastic wrap directly on surface of icing. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Beat with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form just before using.


  • About 2-1/2 cups or 16 servings, about 2-1/2 Tbsp. each

    This icing is for frosting cookies. I had been looking all over for this recipe. Thanks.

    This was the recipe given for making ornaments because it would firm up and get hard. That never happened. It tasted great though. I don't know what I did wrong, but it must have been something. :(

    i made this icing for mothers day, & it turned out to be a diaster. the icing was hard as a brick i couldn't even cut the cake. i felt bad for mom & decided to make her another cake using half the tartar. i found another royal icing recipe from a good cake book & it has been very successful.
