Stiff Zero Consistency - Great for Stencils/3D Cookies, Textures

This consistency is a great starting point to simply store on your countertop in an air tight container.  Why? 

One....Because over time, your royal icing will have water separate and you will always be left with a simple starting point base that you can dilute down in smaller batches as needed. works beautifully as glue for gingerbread houses and 3D cookies is nearly the consistency you can use to make a thick, beautiful texture to pop off a cooke with your plastic stencils

So....first things first....mix your recipe according to the instructions HERE.

My preferred method with this consistency is to drop a spoonful of your thick consistency onto a plate, and use a spatula to add in your color.  The goal with this icing is to keep it really thick.

Sorry for the confusion. I now consistently use 4 tablespoons of meringue powder per 2lb bag of powdered sugar. :)


Your written recipe says 4-6 T meringue powder. The screen shot in the video says 6 T but you actually put 7 spoonfuls in. So is 7 T the magic recipe? Thanks so much for taking time to put this info together!
