Royal Meringue Frosting

Sibby Barrett
This is the frosting you want to use for detailed cookie decorating. It dries hard for packaging. It's not much on flavor but you can add different extracts. Keep it covered well when not using, pushing plastic wrap on the surface, as it dries rock hard when exposed to air.
