Can i thicken my royal icing back up? I am making drop swirl flowers for a cake but i want it to harden so i can pick them up. I'd say it is maybe medium consistency? Is that thick enough for what I need? THanks!!!

add more powdered sugar...it harden also with the meringue.

You can add some cornstarch to it and this will help it get stiffer. Also if you want to dry them faster you can take and put a cookie sheet in the oven with the light on and they will dry faster. Be sure to put a note on the oven control stating to not turn it on or else someone may do so not realizing they are in there.
