You can decorate cookies to look like jack-o-lanterns. With a pastry bag fitted with a #2 tip, pipe around the edge of a cookie and outline the face. Then fill in the areas with thinner royal icing.

    You can find meringue powder at Michael's Craft Store in their Wilton baking section. In our store it is on a low, below knee level, shelf with the icings. Good luck!

    Once again, royal icing made with raw egg whites is being promoted. This is not a good idea for children and elderly...for that matter would anyone in better want to risk getting sick? Why can't we find another recipe for icing? I know at one time MSL used merique (sp?) powder (not powdered egg whites) as a substitute and that is very difficult to find.

    i just made a batch...i used a scant 1 tablespoon of soda and they taste very good...was concerned about the 2 T...plus, i have been using icing that i pick up at eat -n- park bakery (the icing they use for the smiley faces)..they sell it in containers if you ask them at the bakery in the restaurant. fresh.more delicious than the royal icing.. failproof. pipes perfectly. shiny. colors well. dries overnight and then you can stack it...i've been using it for all my holiday sugar cookies
