Easy Royal Icing

I used this recipe to frost Christmas cookies so I added a little water to thin it out for those. For my second batch, I added a little lemon extract to the mixture in place of about half a tablespoon of water and it really added a lot to the taste of the frosting, which before just tasted like plain sugar. It is a very good recipe though - love using the meringue powder method. You can find a can of it in the cake decorating section of most craft stores.
