Apple-Flavored Royal Icing

I am getting ready to make some back to school cookies and found a recipe for cinnamon apple cookies, which I am going to test for spreading and the royal icing recipe that is with it says to add apple juice concentrate to the icing mix. I am not great at understanding the science behind certain things. Does anyone know if the apple juice concentrate will affect the hardening of the icing or make the icing look spotty. Thank you.

I've never tried apple juice concentrate, but I imagine that a good alternative would be to mix (oil-free) lemon juice into your royal icing.  The tartness of the lemon juice would complement the apple-cinnamon flavors and might evoke the tangy effect of an apple, even though it doesn't have the same taste.
