I use the Wilton recipe of Meringue Powder, Confectioner Sugar (10x) and water...
Yes, it gets hard but its fragile. What I have done to make it stronger is to leave attach to it the wax paper. Just cut around it and don't remove the paper. Or I have also done, for example on the buildings you see on my Kim Possible cake, I made the building by drawing them onto cardboard, and filling directly onto the cardboard with the Royal icing. I taped a sucker stick behind the building and what's inserted into the cake is the sucker stick. So you don't have to worry about the royal icing melting into the cake.
You can eat the royal icing figures if you want. I don't like the taste, but some people do... But it won't hurt them if they eat it.... Unless you attach it to the cardboard..
