Hi all i am trying to do a tiara pattern that i found on here. but i cant seem to get it off the bake o glide non stick sheet without it breaking.

 

i am trying to make it bend like normal tiara's do so i taped the design on to a container and then the bake o glide sheet. i am using a stiff peak royal icing and leaving it to dry overnight but i can seem to get it off in one piece. i have tried using nozzels 2 4 5 but it still wont come off

 

 

 

IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE THAT CAN DO A QUICK VIDEO TUTORIAL ON IT? so i can get it done for my nieces cake.

 

Many Thanks

AI'm not familiar with that kind of sheet. I use parchment paper. It has to really be dry before you move it.

this is the non stick icing sheet

how long do you think i should leave the royal icing? i am going to leave it over nigh again and see what it comes out like tomorrow. but if it dont come off i was considering using a bigger piping nozzel.

 

any ideas on how to do a better job of it

yeah, i would use parchment too.

 

pipe it onto a flat piece. give it 20 min or so to set up a little and then drape it over a 6 inch cake dummy, turned sideways, to dry. You've got to let it dry for several days because the bottom/inside will still take a while to dry, Then I would lift the cake dummy and the tiara onto the cake. Let the tiara slide off and then *carefully* peel the parchment off.

Overnight won't be long enough.

Exactly!

you can also spray the waxed paper or parchment paper with pam or whatever fat spray you have

 

then wipe it off

 

a thin layer will remain, will not hurt the royal and it works great for easier removal

 

some cake compatriots might have not heard of this and might be hyperventilating right now

 

but it works fine and the royal sets up fine

 

it's recommended for fine lace pieces to reduce breakage there too

 

another idea for you is to make several so you can afford to break a few while you learn

 

and to help with the drying you can put it in an oven that's turned off but has a light on inside

 

or a warming drawer on low if you happen to have a warming drawer in your oven

 well i really can't remember doing this with royal--not that i haven't just can't remember

 

so test this first if you do it

 

try a blob of royal in there if you happen to have a warming drawer or a dehydrator

 

let it come to room temp before removing

Try lightly greasing your sheet before you pipe. Are you using cream of tartar in your RI? I would.

collette peter's cake video on craftsy covers this type of thing. she overpipes a second time with a little bigger tip and she also greases the wax paper. She said that wax paper works best.
