While it may take some practice, I have found it fairly easy to get the glace icing to the right consistency for piping details. I've had no luck posting my more recent photos to CC, but there are plenty of examples in my album. Or you can always check my Flickr photos. If you have any questions about using glace, don't hesitate to ask! If you're looking for some yummy extracts to add to your icing, I recommend Spices, Etc.
