Holiday Cookies + Royal Icing

Below are some images of some last minute orders for holiday cookies. The HOHO's are vegan whole wheat sugar cookies with cut out fondant toppers and the snowflakes are straight up butter cookies with royal icing. In my travels I have found several royal icing recipes but this one was by far the best! See below for the recipe too! hope you all had a very delightful holiday season... now on to VALENTINES DAY!! Any requests?

Royal Icing Recipe/
4 cups (440 grams) confectioners' (powdered or icing)sugar
3tablespoons(30 grams) meringue powder
1/2 teaspoon extract (vanilla, lemon, almond)
1/2 - 3/4 cup (120 - 180 ml) warm water

Food Coloring (I found that AmeriColor found here works best! ps Bake it Pretty has the best EVERYTHING)

Beat all ingredients in a stand mixer found about 6-8 minutes or until matte and fluffy. Add more water to thin out depending on your usage.
