I have recently just started making cakes and have learned soooo much on here so a big thank you to everyone!

Anyway, this weekend I attempted to make a royal icing tiara. I was so nervous that once I took it off of the wax paper it would crumble into a zillion pieces. Well, I just took it off and it is still in one piece. I was so happy I was dancing around the kitchen. hahaha. After my sad, sad attempt at some roses this weekend, I am really glad the tiara worked out!

I know you are doing the happy dance for sure!! I just made gumpaste roses with luster dust for the first time this weekend. I thought about making a tiara, just for practice!

Please share with us your masterpiece. icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks everyone! Here is a picture of it. Now, my only question is this.....I ordered some mystical dust to sprinkle on it because she is a super sparkly girl who deserves a super sparkly cake. Any advice on the proper way to make that stuff adhere.

Super cute!

Is that the same as luster dust? (newbie here asking icon_razz.gif ) Can you mix a bit with clear vanilla and paint it on with a tiny brush? That's how I applied it to my gumpaste roses.

Wow! It looks really good. I've been wanting to try it but like you said, I thought it would shatter when taken off the wax paper. I guess if it does I'll know how to do it the 2nd time right? Thanks for sharing...

"Our Mystical dust will add a sparkle to your gum paste flowers and cakes when applied to them.

How do you use Mystical dust? It is simple you just use it the same way you use luster dust.

Just simply brush it on your gum paste flowers or cakes to give them a added color touch with a sparkling effect.

This type of sparkling luster dust will make your creations sparkle when applied to them."

I used these instructions....http://cakecentral.com/articles/129/how-to-make-a-royal-icing-tiara

I just used the royal icing recipe from Wilton. I put three layers of icing on and it seemed to work well.
