How do I keep the outline from showing when doing royal icing. I made anchors but the outline still shows. Or will the outline always show no matter what?
Thanks for any help on this matter. icon_smile.gif

From my experience, I've always had somewhat of an outline. I think the thinner the tip will determine how much outline shows.

The best way I found to prevent this is working fast. If you can flood the outline before it has a chance to set up the outline and the flooded portion will merge.

Try using a paintbrush to blend the two.

Thanks everyone! I'll try the paintbrush trick. Unfortunately I worked very fast and still got a line. Is my outline icing to stiff?

When doing cookies you can actually outline in the flood consitancy. I'm not sure how big your picture is or how much detail that they have but you could try that. You outline with the thinner consistancy then working very quickly fill it in.
