*As all ovens are different, you may need to adjust the baking time. Cookies will be soft to touch when you take them out of the oven, leave them to cool on the tray for about 10 minutes (they should firm up a bit) before transferring to a cooling rack.

- Add water slowly 1 teaspoon at a time
- Mix till you get a paste that is smooth and thick like glue
- Place the royal icing into the icing bag
- Push it to the end and tie the bag so it is airtight
- When ready to decorate the gingerbread men, snip a tiny hole to allow the icing to be squeezed through
*Please watch our video for further details on how to do this.
