I use medium consistency royal icing to write on cookies. The icing holds a soft peak. It should be thin enough that it comes out of a small piping tip easily, but not so thin that it loses its shape.
How do you get frosting to harden?
Chilling and adding sugar are the two tastiest ways to harden tub frosting. Simply place the tub in the refrigerator and chill for a few hours, depending on the size of the tub, to firm up the frosting. Add sugar to the frosting by first scooping the desired amount of frosting from the tub and placing it in a bowl.
How long does royal icing take to harden?
If your royal icing is too thin, just keep beating it to introduce more air OR you can add more confectioners’ sugar. When applied to cookies or confections in a thin layer, icing completely dries in about 2 hours at room temperature. If icing consistency is too thin and runny, it will take longer to dry.
How long does it take icing to harden?
Pipe icing onto cookies and decorate, as desired. (If using sanding sugar or sprinkles, they need to be added before the icing starts to set.) Allow icing to completely harden at room temperature before enjoying (this can take anywhere from 3 hours to overnight depending on the consistency and thickness of your icing.)
How do you make icing shiny?
Method 1: Eggs whites are a great way to shine up your fondant, and they usually dry within 2 hours if you need a quick shiny fix. Method 2: Add 1 part vodka, and 1 part corn syrup.

Most recipes rely on water to thin royal icing, but I’ve found cream to be far superior. To continue my analogy regarding a properly made sauce, a small amount of cream adds richness, improving the flavor and mouthfeel of the icing all around.
