  1. Put 35ml of the water into a deep bowl and carefully add the royal icing sugar. 
  2. Start mixing slowly and then gradually increase to a higher speed, adding the remaining water until you reach the desired consistency. Beat until the icing stands in soft peaks. 
  3. Apply the icing to your cake in a thick layer, using a palette knife and leave to harden over night in a cool dry place.
