Royal icing are made from powdered sugar ,water, meringue powder,and flavoring. They are edible although most people will not eat them because they are hard. Be aware that deeper,darker colors like red,deep pink,dark purple,orange, maroon and burgundy may not taste as good because of the amount(2-3 Tbsp) of Americolor food coloring used to make the color. Darker colors will stain the mouth and teeth.
