they look great! will you share the icing recipe please?
I used 4 T meringue powder, 1/2 c of shortening, and about 1.5 lbs. of powdered sugar. I also went crazy with flavoring and added butter and clear vanilla flavoring. It needs to be slightly thicker than regular frosting. By only using 1/2 c. of shortening and 4T meringue powder, it hardened pretty well. These were pretty firm after about 3 hours, but not crunchy like that nasty royal icing. I wanted mine to taste as good as they look. The smell alone is enough to get anyone drooling.
They look great and your icing sounds delish.. I wonder if you could use butter instead of the shortening?
Icing sounds similar to Alice's cookie icing which is in the recipe section. Mine didn't harden though. These are very cute and sound delicious.
crimsonhair - I'm sure that you could use butter. I didn't simply because I wanted pure white icing - I bet it would be even better though.
