Royal Icing Recipe
3 ounces pasteurized egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups confectioners' sugar
In large bowl of stand mixer combine the egg whites and vanilla and beat until frothy. Add confectioners' sugar gradually and mix on low speed until sugar is incorporated and mixture is shiny. Turn speed up to high and beat until mixture forms stiff, glossy peaks. This should take approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Add food coloring, if desired. For immediate use, transfer icing to pastry bag or heavy duty storage bag and pipe as desired. If using storage bag, clip corner. Store in airtight container in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

All courses in the Family & Consumer Sciences are elective. Many students sample the courses available at different stages of their high school careers and discover new and exciting areas open to them.
At the core of all FACS courses you will find the threads of resource management, relationships, information skills and personal development. The skills acquired in FACS are so practical in nature; they will last a lifetime, regardless of your profession.
Those of us who were in high school several years ago may not recognize the cooking and sewing of those days. Our life skills curriculum reflects contemporary topics of a useful nature. We deal entirely with the improvement of the quality of life for the individual and the family. FACS educates to prevent problems by emphasizing problem solving and decision making.
