I printed the template, taped it to a coffee can - taped wax paper overtop of the template on the coffee can and piped the royal icing onto template that way. The curve was perfect. They are however SUPER DUPER fragile breakable.....goodluck!

Hello! is the first time I make a comment because I am new to this forum. According to my experience, it prints the model tiara after I copy and paste parchment paper in a can or bottle that is not too heavy and you're going to hold in your hand. For this you have already prepared icing to firm and you will follow the pattern of the tiara and when you finish the first coat and let it dry to give back hand (I gave up to three) I do it to you to take off the can not break, if you want to paste some details about the tiara you can do in the final coat of icing. The air dry overnight in the detachment carefully and if you want to paint or touch up with gold dust you can do with a brush. This is how I do it and I served in fact I have one that is already several months and did not mostrardor has happened, even with the humidity. Greetings, I hope you serve. Sorry my English.

I just made my first (and second, and third) tiara.

Printed out the design.
Taped printout to a Qrt paint can
-It was excactly the amount of curve I wanted and small enough to hold in my hand if necessary.

Taped wax paper over the image
Used a square tip for the first one, liked the effect, didn't like my piping so trashed it.
Used an oval tip for the second (stiff royal, 1 layer). Came out perfect. Dried removed and painted it couple of the curls broke off, no problem, simple repair - dry, repaint. Added isomalt crystals.

It slid off the paint can (was no longer attached, just sitting on it to let the repair dry) and shattered.

Third tiara - parchment rather than wax paper for (hopefully) easier removal. round tip 5, slightly thinner royal, one layer is drying now. Painting (still attached to can this time) tonight. Wish me luck! No time to make another.

So to the OP I say - Good Luck and make a spare (they're pretty easy to pipe)! icon_biggrin.gif

Put it in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap pressed down so it is laying on the icing, but enough to hang out under the lid. Dampen a paper towel and put on top of the plastic. Put on lid, burp air. Store on counter or in cubbord for 1-2 weeks. Give it a stir before use and adjust consistancy as needed.

Also, if there is any left in the piping bag, I just wrap the bag (tip and all) in a damp paper towel and store in an airtight container. This will work for a couple of days but then the icing will start to thicken and you will need to empty the bag and adjust consistancy.

HTH.
