I love adapting old recipes and making them vegan-friendly. This recipe are a clear example, they do have a buttery flavor, which is surprising. I think that is important to use refined coconut oil because of its neutral flavor. It is better if it was refined at 75 F (24 C) and non-hydrogenated. Another tip for success is to use good quality vanilla extract, it has to be the real deal, not just vanilla flavoring. A little goes a long way so even if it is expensive it will last a long time, or you can make it at home.
This royal icing is great, unlike other where you just mix lemon juice and powdered sugar it doesn’t break when you bite it, it is always moist. And it tastes great! You can use juice if you want for flavoring instead of water and add another extract in lieu of vanilla extract. You can perfectly adapt it to your liking!
I used about half of the amount of royal icing it yields, the rest I kept in an airtight container. It lasts 2 or 3 days.
Enjoy this recipe!
