Can you coat cake pops with royal icing? I have seen recipes using candy melts and chocolate, but I was wondering about slightly thinned out RI.

i don't think you'd have any problems coating the cake pop with it, my only concern would be how hard royal icing dries. i'm not sure if there's a way to soften it, or if it doesn't matter that much to you, then i'd say to just go for it and try it out.

As I understand things, the decorators in the UK add glycerin to royal to keep it from hardening to tooth breaking strength. You could try that. I have NO idea how much.

Personally, I'd stick with the chocolate myself. It's a nice change from icing, and as others have said, RI gets very, very hard. I don't think it's meant to be eaten - more of a making decorations thing.
