Recipe Tips

You can substitute orange or lemon extract for the almond extract if preferred.

If you need a thicker icing for outlining and details, add more confectioners’ sugar until the icing is quite thick. You can thin the icing with a few drops of water to make a glaze for filling in outlines or dipping cookies.

The icing will harden quickly into a shiny glaze. Keep stirring the bowl of icing as you work with it to keep it at the right consistency.
