It takes approx. 2 minutes to read this article

There are many recipes for frosting. We can make it in the simplest version, using only powdered sugar and water. However, this option does not allow us to achieve a truly aesthetic effect, which will also satisfy us with taste.

Lemon icing

Lemon icing is a slight modification of the classic icing recipe. In this variant, you replace water with squeezed lemon juice. This will give it a slightly sour flavor, making it perfect as a topping for very sweet cakes and pies. During the holiday season, you can also use orange juice

To half a cup of sifted powdered sugar add about 4, 5 tablespoons of lemon juice. Blend thoroughly to a smooth paste. The finished icing should be glossy and not too flowing.

Royal Icing

The name is taken in this case for a reason. It is the true king among icings. It always looks great and is the perfect decoration for cakes, cookies and desserts. Whisk two egg whites with about 200 g powdered sugar into a stiff mass. You can add a tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon of potato flour. Mix until a smooth mass is formed. The resulting frosting is really white and strongly opaque, not like its lemon counterpart – translucent. If you want, you can also add food coloring to it and you will get a colorful icing.
