This is the recipe for the Royal Icing that I used to frost both the Sugar Cookies and the gingerbread men. It is really easy, has a nice smooth texture and a good flow- plus it sets up hard like regular royal icing. If you are worried, there is no weird taste or smell to this! It is awesome and miraculous and I think you will really like it!

Ingredients
  • ½ cup aquafaba (chickpea liquid)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla or almond extract
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • hot water
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment whip the aquafaba and vanilla and then add the powdered sugar cup by cup. Use a few spoon fuls of hot water to get it to just the right consistency- but go tablespoon by tablespoon so it’s not too runny!
  2. When you get the desired consistency, transfer to a piping bag or divide into smaller batches and color with food coloring.
  3. Use immediately.
