In my Wilton Class 3 class last night we learned how to make flowers out of royal icing. The Easter Lily, Poinsettia, Morning Glory and Petunia. I'm sure most of you either make fondant or gumpaste flowers. Do any of you make them out of royal icing?
Also, can petal dust be used effectively of royal icing flowers?
I'm taking the old class two and I was wondering the same thing.
And I think you can use dusted, but you might have to put it on before the icing dries. But I'll wait and see what everybody else says.
I'm not sure. I don't know how you would brush it on if the icing is still wet. I have some flowers that are drying right now. I might give the petal dust a try later tonight.
I've done royal icing flowers. You can wait for them to dry completely and then use a vodka/luster dust solution to paint them (check my gallery for the Relief Society Birthday cake - I used this technique on the "As Sisters In Zion" layer.
you can dust them when they are set but not dry as well... just be sure to use a very soft brush to keep the flower from indenting from the bristles.
You could also dry dust them.
