  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • black gel food color


  • Add the sugar, meringue powder, almond extract, and corn syrup into a large bowl.
  • Add a few drops of warm water and blend with a mixer, adding additional warm water as needed, to form an icing that is smooth in consistency, but not too runny.
  • Pipe dots of white royal icing onto parchment paper. The size of your dots will vary depending on your project. Set aside.
  • Mix a few drops of black gel color into a small bowl with approximately 3 tablespoons of white royal icing. Spoon the black royal icing into a piping bag or zip top bag.
  • Pipe a small dot of black royal icing onto the white royal icing circle.
  • Set the eyeballs aside for 24 hours to dry completely.
  • These eyeballs may be stored in a zip-top bag or covered container in a cool, dry place for months.
