The royal icing used to be known as the “egg white icing” and it dates back to the 1600’s. It was commonly used to decorate cakes and also was known as “edible glue” due to its quick hard drying properties.


In 1840 this icing changed its name to "Royal Icing", when Queen Victoria’s married Prince Albert. It was the first reported wedding cake to be decorated using a white icing and its intricate decoration. This icing was subsequently named Royal Icing in honor of this wedding cake.

I have been using this kind of icing to decorate cookies and over the years I came up with this easy but wonderful recipe.
