okay.... normally I do not work with royal icing, but I just covered some " trees" with it for a snow scene....... the question I have is , if I use royal on top of the butter cream icing, will the royal stay soft, or get hard like it does on the trees I made.....(just covered ice cream cones) TIA

I think I did this with a cake covered in BC and did RI designs on top. They were small but dried for me.

The RI should still dry hard. There was a link similar to this recently. Here it is:

Thanks, malakin, I want to make a POND, and have the edges snow covered, right down into the water........... could I use the royal icing that is left overfrom the trees, or would it get all hard an not be able to cut through it ? Should I just stick with the butter cream ?
