So I made my first royal icing tiara last night. Overall, I think I did ok.
However, it looks a little...wonky. I am wondering if maybe my icing was too thick? When you pipe it, should it be like butter cream consistency or should it be thicker? Or is it just that my hand isn't steady enough yet?
IF you look at the pic below, you'll see what i mean.
I think it looks good, yes a slight thick in areas, but once you dust it up or color it up and basically fix it up it will be beautiful and you wont see all that your seeing.
I think your just a bad critic of your own work, I am of mine...lol
Thank you! It just seems bumpy and weird. Maybe I am being hyper critical but I can't help it. LOL
yeah I understand I get the very same way, I always want to do BETTER, I want it to come out like I see others do it...lol
When you pipe with royal icing it shouldn't hurt your hand to pipe. With the right consistency you should be able to pipe comfortably and easily. If you have thicker and thinner areas it can also be pressure control, squeezing too hard at times, or too soft at times.
There's my pro!!! Hi Texas Sugar...slow friday? lol
I really need to start getting my stuff together for this big 1st birthday party, tapered zebra cake for my grand baby...lol
Im dreading it!!!! Fear of CANT DO....
I'll bet it's my pressure control. It didn't hurt to pipe it but I think that I just need to practice!
