So. I am making mini tiaras for cupcakes. I dont have much experience with RI tho. And last time I made a RI decoration, it fell apart by just looking at it.
But I am thinking that since its a mini tiara, it shouldnt fall apart THAT easily right? I mean, its not big, nor does it have any weight to it? Im thinking about using a tip nr 3.
I have to make about 30 tiaras, thats why I am asking for advice. Would suck if I made 30 tiaras, then they all turned out bad. And I'd have to make another 30... They have to be done my Sunday afternoon.
Any info or advice would be good. Thanks
AWell...what are they going to look like? Are they flat? Do you have a pic you're copying? Are you putting a photo underneath a piece of parchment and piping over that?
well just be sure you make a good batch of royal icing--check out 'joy of baking' for a great video and instructions--
I found a picture online. I dont want them to be flat, but I am basicly doing exactly what you said. Im making copys of the mini tiara, then putting it underneath a piece of parchment paper on something round, then piping them.
AI did pretty much exactly what you are describing for an order about a year ago. Here are my tips: - You will probably find that #3 is too large a tip. Go with #1 or #2. (Well, go ahead and try #3, just be prepared to switch.) - Rather than piping onto parchment and then putting the parchment on something round, just roll up pieces of parchment into cylinders (hold them to shape with elastic bands) and pipe right on those. (I placed a butter knife inside each roll to keep them in place.) - In spite of your best efforts, some will probably break. Make extras. Good luck with it! :)
AThanks. I dont have one size 1 or 2. Lets hope I can find one at the store tomorrow.
Make plenty of extras. Use a touch of acetic acid (or vinegar) in your RI to ensure it dries fast.
AYou could use chocolate or candy melts, in a parchment bag you could cut a small tip to avoid purchasing one. I prefer to work with chocolate when I can.

What Smckinney07 described is exactly what I did for the above picture. I think the candy melts held up pretty well and they hardened quicker and I think taste better than RI. I think I taped a paper towel roll covered in wax paper to the counter and piped a few tiaras in a row.
AI made my own royal icing. Used a tip 3. Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed that they dont fall apart!
