I am doing something that I have never done before. I am making a full sheet cake with a large rectangle logo in the middle. I plan on making the logo out of royal icing. I was told to print the logo out and then put wax paper over it and then trace it with the royal icing. Since it will be a rather large solid royal icing piece, I want to make the best royal icing. What recipe do you suggest. I am not great at royal icing for some reason, so I need a fool proof method. Thanks!!
i use the joy of baking recipe with egg whites and if you want super strong you can add gum arabic -- it's just a powder comes in a spice jar and costs a few bucks -- how big is big -- you might want to consider making it in pieces like a puzzle if possible so you don't have an unwieldy monster that will break on you -- another idea is to use a frozen buttercream transfer -- i'm sure it's google-able and i'm sure there's a how-to on here --
best to you
