NOTES

Storage:Store any leftover icing in an airtight container, or in the individual bags, in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Before using, allow the icing to come to room temperature.Tips:

  • This icing recipe can very easily be doubled.
  • It is very important to only use gel food color for the icing because it does not add extra liquid to the icing (even a small amount of extra liquid can change the consistency).
  • If adding sprinkles to your cookies, make sure to add them immediately after you frost your cookies. The sugar cookie icing dries quickly!
