I need to make 175 white royal icing flowers for a wedding cupcake tower. The bride would like the leaves tipped in black. (also silver leaves) Any idea how I could go about doing that? I tried painting black food coloring on the tips of dried RI flowers, but it looks weird. Should I try to stripe black inside the decorator bag when I'm making them? Is there such thing as black luster dust? Any ideas? Thanks!!
Sorry I can't help. But I too am watching for some advice. Good luck with your order.
Melissa (SimplyM)--I never got any advice about coloring the royal icing roses. I ended up tipping them with a black food coloring marker. It worked pretty well. Took a lot of time, though (175+ roses). Take a look at the cupcake tower on my posted cake photos. You can see how the roses turned out. Thanks!! Elaine
sorry you didn't get advise in time. I did a wedding cake with black RI flowers & white flowers. I hand painted each white flower with black food color & a fine tip brush. Yes it was time consuming, but the effect was well worth it.
