Method

  • Start by whisking the aquafaba (chickpea water) until foamy. Ideally, use an electric mixer if you have one, as it will be faster.
  • Add the icing sugar and continue mixing on high speed, for about 3 minutes, or until the mixture is shiny and it forms soft peaks.
  • If you need the icing to be stiffer, add more icing sugar. Alternately, if you need to thin it, add more aquafaba.
  • To ice a traditional Christmas cake, spread a little warmed apricot jam over the cake, and cover it with rolled marzipan. Then, spread the royal icing over the cake, forming soft peaks. Finally, decorate with Christmas-themed ornaments.
