I am going to attempt to make a Spiderman cake and I need to use royal icing to make the webs. I have never used royal icing and I was wondering if it mattered which recipe I use and about how long it takes for the icing to dry. I know there is alot of information on this site but I am not getting the answers I am looking for when using the search engine.

Thank you in advance for any help!

A lot of people here use Antonia74's recipe. (in the recipe section) I've used it before and it was great!! I'm not good with all the other questions your asking, and I don't want to give you any wrong information so hopefully somebody else can give you some advice.

i would use a recipe on here like antonias because its strong and u dont want to do fine piping with icing thats not strong. i always like to give the royal about 24 hours to dry. if u don't give it enough time it will break when u pick it up. just dont pipe too thin or it will break, royal icing is very fragile.
