Happy Valentine's Day!



Cinderella & Prince Charming and
Mickey & Mini Mouse silhouette cookies (inspired by Zazzle.com).

Oops! Mickey and Mini mouse's tails are missing! I guess it's too late to fix them cuz I just tossed all the icings out ^^;

Wish all you have a great Valentine's Day!


Royal icing Recipe for Piping or Outline

2 cups(1 pound) confectioners' sugar
4 tsp meringue powder
about 3 TBSP warm water
1 TBSP lemon Juice or 1/2 - 1 tsp any extract(vanilla,almond...)

Royal icing for flooding

2 cups(1 pound) confectioners' sugar
4 tsp meringue powder
about 6 TBSP warm water
1 TBSP lemon Juice or 1/2 - 1 tsp any extract(vanilla,almond...)


1. Combine all ingredients in the bowl of your electric mixer.

2. Beat on high for 5 minutes if you're using an electric stand mixer or for 10 minutes if you're
using an electric hand mixer. (If your mixer has multiple attachments, use the
PADDLE)

3. When you reach the desired consistency, it's important that you
immediately cover the mixture of store it in airtight containers.

** You can always
add more confectioner's sugar or water if your icing is too runny or stiff.


Recipes are from "Cookie Craft", Valerie Peterson and Janice Fryer.
