    1. Hi Julie! I’m not the creator of this recipe but I would think that potato starch (or any thickening agent/starch like arrowroot or tapioca) would work for that matter. I used tapioca and it worked out just fine, so I’d assume that would be the same for potato. Happy madeleine baking 🙂

  1. Hi I’m trying the recipe now, hopefully it works for me :@. I did add the lemon, instead I added orange zest and juice hopefully that was ok to do. But my question is, I didn’t notice the icing part for this recipe. Did I miss it?

    1. Hello! The icing was indeed not included in the recipe, but here is the royal icing recipe from this recipe’s creator @nm_meiyee that you can use:

        2 tbsp aquafaba
        1/4 tsp cream of tartar
        1-2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
        1 1/2 to 2 cups sifted powdered sugar

      To make the icing, beat aquafaba with cream of tartar and salt in a stand mixer until foamy. Add all powdered sugar and beat on low speed until thick. Beat in supercolour powder and beat until thickened. Thin the icing with lemon juice to the desired consistency.

      Hope this helps!
