5. Chill on pans for easy handling

6. Cut out shapes and remove excess dough

The Royal Icing

This recipe calls for raw egg whites.
For safetly reasons (food born illness such as Salmonella), I would recommend finding an egg white alternative, such as pasteurized liquid egg whites which can be found in most grocery stores.

3 Egg Whites (or pasteurized egg whites equivalent)
1/2 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
1 Pound 10X Sugar

More sugar makes it thick
Add water to thin mixture.

Color ONLY with paste food colors
