Can I add Lime Juice to Royal Icing?

Tehama | Jul 11, 2007 05:49 AM

Hey all... Just made some killer lime cookies this morning for a lime-freak-friend's birthday, and was just going to ice them with Royal Icing (R.I.) when it occurred to me that I could go even more overboard on the lime theme and add lime juice to the R.I..

I was going to use a R.I. using the meringue powder method, but was wondering if it would destroy the consistency &/or ruin the taste. Martha's meringue R.I. recipe is just 1 lb. confectioner's sugar and 5 TBL of meringue powder. If y'all don't think it would ruin the R.I., how much should I add?

Your baking expertise is much appreciated!

(totally off-topic, but these grilled shrimp skewers of Martha's look incredible:
