I was carrying a cake into my mother-in-laws house and was attached by wasps. I dropped the cake. Come to find out there was a wasp nest near the door that no one told me about until after it happen. After spending so much time and care over the cake, I just feel horrible.

Did you get stung? I feel for you. Bees are my worst fear. I would've dropped it too.

Wow! I feel horrible for you. I probably would have dropped the cake too. So sorry that all your hard work was a loss. icon_sad.gif

So sorry to hear that. I hope you were at least able to eat the cake even if it wasn't pretty. Wasps are nasty. One of my daughters was stung twice tonight. There was a new nest under the seat of my kids' see saw and as soon as they started moving, they attacked her. Once we started looking around, we realized just how many nests had formed in the past few days. It must be that time of year. I am not letting them on anything now until I inspect it each time. Ugghhh!

Royal icing is icing sugar/ powdered sugar, mixed with eggwhite x

I made the crown out of fondant, and rolled it out. I used vanilla extract to bind the fondant together and dusted it with luster dust. I have made royal icing tiaras before too. I draw out the design , tape it to a cylinder (rolled oats container), taped a wax piece of paper over that and use fondant/gum paste/royal icing to coy design.
