This is a classic royal icing recipe which is perfect for your Christmas cake. Try to get it done a week or so in advance, after the marzipan, so it has time to harden.
It is very easy to make and the kids will have so much fun spreading the icing on the cake, putting on any decorations and licking the spoon and bowl after!
It can also work for any other cake all year round, but it works especially well with rich fruit cakes.

When you are spreading the icing on the cake, make sure you put a damp dish cloth over the bowl with the remaining icing in it because it hardens very quickly.
If you want to, add a few drops of food colouring.
