Recipe Notes

Recipe adapted from Lila Loa -


Royal Icing


  • 2 lbs confectioner's sugar
  • 5 tbsp meringue powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup water


  1. Mix the flavoring into half the water. 

  2. Using a mixer, combine the meringue powder and powdered sugar.  

  3. Slowly add the water and flavoring into the dry ingredients. The icing will then become very thick.

  4. Next add the remaining water and mix on medium speed and whip until thick and fluffy. Stop mixing when the icing forms a soft peak. 

  5. You can add more water as needed to reach the desired piping consistency.

  2. How many batches of the cookie recipe did you need to make all the cookies? How many tiles did you make?

    1. We needed 2 batches to make the 24 tiles, 4 kings, 2 castles and starting tiles. It may depend on how big you make your cookies. Ours were about the same size as the giant version of kingdomino.
