Hi fellow CC'ers,

I need to make a Hello kitty Royal Icing transfer to stand untop a cake this weekend, but I can never get my icing to set up hard enough for my images to stand. Can anyone give me a royal icing recipe that sets up really hard?

I use 5oz of warm water added to 5 tblsp meringue powder, wisk for about 2 minutes to get rid of any lumps, add a whole 1kg bag of powdered sugar and mix in my mixer for 8-10 minutes.

I like my icing nice and thick to start out with and then thin it down to the consistency I need for my project.

I just made a hello kitty image as well for a cake I am doing on Friday, lots of Hello Kitty cakes lately =)

I use the Wilton recipe for Royal icing for them.

How long are you letting them dry before removing it from the backing?

1 part egg white 6 part powder suger. Start on slow speed with just the whites until foamy add sugar still on low beat for 7 - 10 min.

I just made a hello kitty RI transfer for my last cake (see my pics) and it turned out great. It was my first time doing it. I used antonia74's recipe and it was really nice. I laid mine down on the cake but it could of stood up too if I wanted it to add a skewer to the back.
