I have never made any type of royal or glace' icing. Both of these recipes got such high ratings and I've seen so many people's beautiful work using these 2 recipes...but what is the difference? I just made a batch of NFSC for the first time and I would like to decorate them, but wasn't sure which recipe to use. Any suggestions or input? Thanks!

I've not made toba's glace, but a glace will be more transparent and softer than royal icing. Antonia's icing is fabulous to work with. It doesn't dry rock hard, but it is pretty hard. The glace probably does not have egg whites in it, while royal icing has egg whites that make it fluffy. You can get it quite stiff. The glace is probably a consistency that has less body.

Alana is correct. I've made Toba's once. I like the taste better, but it takes much longer to dry and is not as easy to work with.
