My son has food allergies to milk and egg so I started making my own cakes. I have been taking cake decorating courses to learn how to make nicer cakes for him and my family. Currently, I am taking Wilton Course II at my local Michaels. That course is mostly royal icing flowers. I am trying to find an eggless royal icing so my son can safely have the cake. I have tried 2 recipes that didn't work, one had gelatine and the other had Ener-G egg replacer. The icing doesn't turn out stiff enough to make flowers such as a rose. It is more liquidy like for icing cookies or gingerbread houses. Has anyone used an eggless royal icing that worked for making flowers?
Thanks for any help,
Try using lime water and gelatine only and see the result.Goodluck
