Easy Icing for Sugar Cookies

I've been baking for quite a while now and this is only the first time I iced cookies. I really thought making icing is difficult. The words royal icing, cream of tartar, meringue powder, double boiler, etc. sounds too intimidating to make and sometimes difficult to find. However, there are other icing recipes for sugar cookies that are easy as 1-2-3.

Like the one I made with my little one earlier.
1) Just mix powdered sugar (about 4 Tbsp) and milk (around 1/2-1 Tbsp). Add more milk if the mixture is too stiff or more powdered sugar if the mixture is too runny. Note: Make a thick consistency for making borders/outlines/details and thinner consistency for flooding.
2) Add food color if desired.
3) Put mixture inside piping bag (or just a sandwich bag and cut a tiny hole on one corner) or small liquid seasoning dispenser and decorate your cookies.

*Let the decorated cookies dry overnight at room temp so that the icing won't break when you stack the cookies.


Since this is very very easy, I can make this again and again til I master mixing the milk-sugar ratio, adding colors and flavors, and decorating sweets.

This is a fun (and educational) activity too to keep the little one busy and entertained.
