Probably a stupid question, but . . . can this royal icing be used to make flowers for cakes and to do stringwork, etc., or is this just for cookies?

You can make flowers for cakes with RI, but they will set hard and crunchy. I have used RI for cake flowers several times so that I could get tons of them made up ahead of time. I don't believe that RI would be a good choice for string work. It would become too brittle and probably break off. Others may have a different opinion or experience.

yeh it is i think, but isn't it like royal icing but with corn/glucose syrup added to allow it to become more stretchy or something?

I've used buttercream w/a little corn syrup added for my stringwork. However, I was wanting to try it with royal icing next time just to see the difference.
