Wilton Royal Icing

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by C.C619

I did the Wilton cake decorating course last year and this was the recipe for Royal Icing we used. It dries hard and is great for writing and flowers that will keep for weeks if stored in an airtight,it means you can make these well in advance. Keep them away from strong light as any colours will fade. Keep equipment grease free, or you will end up with a soupy mess.

This was really easy to make and use. I made it for my 5 1/2 year old to use to decorate her Easter bunny cake for the holiday. She had fun and it worked well for her. The bunny cake turned out much differently than I had planned. Originally, I was going to decorate it myself but she insisted on trying to do it all by herself. I figured what the heck, it's for her anyway, why not?!? I'd post a picture but I'm not sure it would make others want to try this great recipe! It's quite a work of art! Thanks for posting. Made for Pick a Chef Spring 2009.
