I have only used RI to make flowers and lettering which get very hard. I have seen several people say they pipe decorations on their cakes with RI so I was wondering what the effect is, does it get hard and what is the advantage of using RI rather than Buttercream?

Thanks for the help!

You you royal for lace work, extension work, filigree, flowers, lettering flood work, brush embroidery, stencils for lettering and lace work........and there's probably some others I haven't listed icon_lol.gif You can even use royal to ice a cake, several layers gives you a really sharp finish ...I think this is more popular in the UK

It does dry really hard. you can find examples on google search etc icon_lol.gif

I prefer to use RI on MMF as when I do the loops that overhang, the BC falls off. It does dry just hard.
