“But all things must have a beginning, and the student who is about to embark on a career of icing and piping must study well the aspect of his own fitness for the work, his adaptability, his will to overcome obstacles, and his willingness to practice.” (Nirvana, 1953, pg. 1)

    Really awesome! Thank you for sharing. I notice that you used a very thin layer to cover the cake dummy. Could you let me know how you made this? I use Wilton rolled fondant to cover cake and it will be torn apart at the corner if thin as this. Do you think other brand will perform better? Thank you!

      Hi Anny,

      Thank you for your question. Just two ingredients, icing sugar and pasteurized egg whites. Stiffer(stiff peak) icing for shells and thicker borders, thinner(soft peak) icing for string work and lace. It takes some playing around to get the right consistency.

      Hope that helps,
      Rose

    Thank I like it could you share your royal icing with me.

    • Rose Sen says:

      Hello Jassy,

      Thank you for your question. It is a very simple recipe – just egg whites and icing sugar. I mix very small quantities in at a time, and adjust the consistency according to what is required.

      Hope that helps,
      Rose
