This is the best royal icing recipe! It is easy to make, has amazing flavor and dries softer than other royal icings. I'm always getting compliments whenever I use this to decorate my sugar cookies!

*A quick note about adding the lemon flavor- when the lemon powder or extract is first added to the thick icing, the flavor can be intense. The powder specifically can have more of a citric acid flavor. Once you add water to create 15-20 second flood icing, the intensity of the lemon will lessen. The flavor of the cookie pairs very nicely with the flavor from the thinned out flood icing. If you are NOT making flood icing, feel free to adjust the amount and use less lemon.
If you think you might not enjoy lemon, swap out it out for vanilla extract. Be sure to either get clear vanilla extract or white food coloring though because normal vanilla extract will darken your icing.
