Can some one tell me the difference between easy icing and bc? What can i do with easy (Royal) icing?
Never heard it called easy icing! Cause it most definatly isn't! It can be used to cover cakes, traditionally fruit cakes with marzipan - but you can marzipan a sponge then do it. It usually takes several coating of royal to get a smooth finish.
Also great for decorating cookies, and making run outs - shapes/ letters/ numbers. (can use bc on cookies, not for run out style stuff, unless you do a bc transfer, which must lie flat)
I think royal might be most popular as a glue - because it sets rock hard, very strong. Bc can be used as glue but is not as strong at all.
Can also use royal for brush embroidery, and delicate piping - although u can use bc too.
Thanks, it's from Dr Oetker, don't know if you get it there. I'll give it a go.
it must just be one of their new products - they are bringing out a rash of them for xmas!
