It doesn't seem hard enough to be royal. My daughter received a Sweet 16 bouquet some years ago, and the icing was crusted, but not hard like royal. I wonder if they put glycerine or something else in royal icing to get it that way.

I agree, it's too soft to be royal. I'd love to know what they use as well. There is a recipe a few pages back, i'll have to try...

Well maybe it's a glace icing, it just didn't seem like it to me.

I don't think it was glace either.
Such a dilemma! I should be cleaning my house, or doing something else constructive, and I'm contemplating and agonizing over icing!

C by D was hiring in my area several weeks ago. $7 and hour for experienced decorators. I'd love to work there for the experience of it, but that wouldn't cover my gas/childcare costs! I can't see doing something that costs more than not working. Then again, we're blessed and are crazy frugal and live on one income.

I'm surprised they pay so little for such intricate work that designers have to do. Do they have stores in different states? I thought they are based in one location and ship out to everyone.

They are in several states. There is one near us.

Do you have any examples of "painted" on Royal that I can see?
