Did you add a little piping gel to your royal icing. The first time I did lilies was with a little piping gel added and they came out nice. The next time, the store was out of piping gel and I made them without it, my edges were ragged and they broke easily! HTH (Let's see how many times this pops up!)

I have just learned how to make gum paste lillies. They are very easy (you can find instructions online. They also dry very fast since they are gumpaste. You can color the gumpaste or paint the lillies...much more durable than royal icing. What's with the double posts???

I did add piping gel the only other thing i can think of it has been raining here for 2 weeks i wonder if that affecting them. Im taking a fondant gumpaste course right now so hopefully they will come out well...
what is with the double post i posted once and it came up several times?
i will keep trying with the royal icing and add more piping gel maybe that will help icon_smile.gif
