Royal Icing is not a brand of icing to be purchased. It is made by using a recipe. It dries to a hard white, shiny gloss. Adding food coloring will make different colors.

Can you use royal icing to make butter icing?

Royal icing and butter icing are completely different products. Royal icing is made with beaten egg whites (often as dry egg white powder) which break down when in contact with any fat or oil. Butter icing has a very high fat content, so the two types of icing are not compatible. If for some reason no sugar is available to make butter icing, it might be possible to reduce completely dry royal icing to a powder in a blender or food processor, then use that in place of powdered sugar for the butter icing. But that would be a very odd way of getting sugar by way of reverse engineering.

What is the difference between royal icing sugar and icing sugar?

Icing sugar is finely ground sugar, which when added to whisked egg whites makes Royal Icing. Royal Icing sugar is finely ground suger pre-mixed with dried, pasteurised egg white. This is good if you want to avoid the "risk" associated with raw eggs. However, the ratio of egg white to sugar is fixed and the only adjustment which can be made is to add water (or lemon juice/glycerine) to vary the texture.

Why is Royal Icing called 'Royal'?

I found the following on an article by Pat Lock. The title 'royal' was given to royal icing after being used on Queen Victoria's wedding cake in 1840. Francatelli, the Queen's famous French chef, published a book in l864 in which he describes how to ice a wedding cake with a mixture of egg whites, sugar and lemon juice beaten together. He wrote 'use this icing to mask the entire surface of the cake with a coating about a quarter of an inch thick'. But, long before the above date this type of icing was in use. A cook, wrote in 1789, that she spread it over cakes with the aid of a board or a large feather! And then placed it in front of 'a great fire' to dry. So we can see royal icing has been popular for many years. The simple ingredients, egg white and icing sugar create a dazzling icing, making it the perfect choice for wedding cakes. Dried egg whites can be used instead of fresh. Not only does this save having a surplus of egg yolks, but also the icing is whiter than icing made with fresh whites.
