Yes, that is how most people pipe scrolls on the sides of cakes because it is smoother. Go for it! icon_smile.gif

No kidding? I was led to believe that RI and BC don't mix...meaning Ri details on a bc cake won't work because the grease from the bc breaks down the RI. So which is it? Cause I would love to do the same thing with a cake coming up and paint the scrolls with gold luster dust...but thought I couldn't.

I've never tried it with royal, I've always done it with buttercream, you just need to make sure it is a thin consistency. You can add a bit of corn syrup or piping gel to your icing to keep it from breaking .

I've heard the grease keeps the royal icing from hardening. So maybe it would work for looks, it just wouldnt harden.
