I have baked a lot in my life but am new to decorating and could really do with some help, I'm making my daughter a two tier cake for her 5th birthday in 2 weeks, I have promised to make an icing crown as the topper! I've make up some royal icing as per directions on the box but it just is too wet so runs and bleeds, does anyone know what I can do to rectify this so I get the consistency that comes out almost tube like- thick and smooth holding together- please?
Also I think the crown I've chosen is far too intricate so would anyone have a template that's not too testing for a first timer please. I love this site it's kept me very busy recently, lol.
Thanks all in advance
