can i put a royal icing piece on parchment paper and have it peel off the same as wax paper? i need to start one tonight and it's 1000, and i'm not going to the grocery. could i spray the parchment with a little cooking spray? thanks.

Actually, parchment paper is basically non stick. Not sure how it would work on royal icing but I think it is fine without the cooking spray.

Rylan's right...grease is the enemy of royal icing, so no cooking spray.

Parchment paper will work fine. But NO cooking spray! You don't need it with parchment anyway.

parchment is better than wax paper anyway.

i've done a tiara using parchment paper. It peels off very easily once the RI has dried. Definitely no need for cooking spray.
