    Here's one of the website links for royal icing: There are several variations if you search the database. The printer icon is a light grey image you can find underneath the recipe title, to the left of the picture of the lamb cookies.

    Where is the print function? In this age when we are all concerned about the environment, it is amazing that now when if I was to print the recipe it prints 15 pages. Luckily I checked before I printed. Bring back the old format it was easier to read now the whole recipe cannot be seen on the screen without scrolling.
