Christmas is coming and I'm getting ready to start making my cookies. I do a lot of decorating on my sugar cookies and was wondering what is the best way to thin Royal Icing? I want to be able to pipe it as if I were outlining the edge of the cookie, but I want it to hold it's shape and the royal icing is a little too stiff to pipe comfortably and consistantly. It tends to want to break and I'd like to be able to pipe nice smooth lines. Or do I use royal icing....should I be using something else??? I've heard everything from water to corn syrup. Any help would be much appreciated.
