Instructions
  1. 1

    Draw the design that you wish to put on the cake or cookies on the back side of a sheet of wax or parchment paper with a permanent marker. Wax and parchment paper are partially see-through like tracing paper, making it possible to trace a design from a book or printout if you wish.

  2. 2

    Fill a 10-inch icing bag with a royal cream icing in the colour of your choice. Attach the small round or writing tip.

  3. 3

    Trace the design you drew on the back of your paper onto the paper's front side with the icing.

  4. 4

    Allow the royal icing to dry. The exterior surface of the icing will get a hard crust.

  5. 5

    Flip the paper over and press it onto a freshly iced cake or cookie.

  6. 6

    Gently lift away the paper leaving the iced piping on the cake.

Ai've never done it that i csn remember -- but some people use a piece of glass or Plexiglas instead of paper -- then use that to impress the dried royal design onto the cake
