So after patching back together 3 royal icing tiaras, I'd just like to say that you should not substitute parchment paper for waxed paper! The parchment stuck so badly, I broke almost every tiara trying to remove it... Lesson learned! icon_smile.gif

I don't even try to use royal anymore for my tiaras I use gumpaste - IMO it works out much better, they are not nearly as fragile. Here is a pic of one I did recently:

I don't use parchment or wax paper. I use plastic wrap for all things royal. It practically falls right off. No sticking ever.

Loucinda, beautiful tiara! I will certainly try this with my next request. It's absolutely beautiful and so much smoother than the royal. Thank you!

I agree Loucinda what a beautiful tiara! I will have to try it that way also. Thank you.

Thank you! I use gum glue (just some gumpaste dissolved in water) to glue the "joints" together. I also put the bottom edge of the tiara on last - that way it has a nice finished look to it (all the edges are then hidden behind the main band that way) This is the only way I will make them now, they are much easier to handle then the royal or chocolate ones!
