Very pretty cupcake! what tip did you use? I have been wanting to try a Royal that doesn't dry hard..

My daughters fiance is from the Philippines he said it is very hot there.

When it says,"icing sugar (not pure)", does it mean icing mixture?

i've read it somewhere... i'm not sure where... anyways, icing sugar are not pure cane powdered sugar. it contains cornstarch also. so it makes a different result in making icing. thats all i can remember... i'll try to search it.

He is a great guy. I think the men are raised differently in the Philipines than in America. He moved to the U.S when he was 12 but still his family is very traditional. He is Very kind and puts her before anything else. I always told her to watch how a man treats his mother and you will learn a lot. He LOVES his mother and is very family oriented.

I have tip 2D ... I am going to try that on my next cupcakes. icon_biggrin.gif

actually, i'm surprised coz this RI is not too sweet... just make sure to really whip it, when i did use this last week, i was in a hurry so i guess i didnt whip it enough so the RI seems to melt on my cuppies... i used a small grass tip, not the 2d. i'l post some pics later...
