Royal Icing Recipe

Royal Icing Recipe

Our Royal Icing Recipe is really simple, almost as simple as fondant icing. We love to ice our Christmas Cake recipe with this homemade royal icing recipe for a truly traditional cake.

We like to leave ours spiky, like an authentic snow scene but you can of course smooth yours down with a pallet knife.

If you’ve left it too late to make your own Christmas cake or need a gift for a friend why not buy our handmade Christmas Cake online.

If this all sounds a little bit scary why not come on one of our courses at our Cookery School in Chipping Sodbury to learn from the professionals.


  • 2 egg whites
  • 500g icing sugar
  • Lemon juice


  1. Whisk the egg whites until stiff
  2. Add a whole 500g box of icing sugar a bit at a time
  3. Add the squeeze of lemon juice
  4. Use a pallet knife to cover the cake with the icing
