Hello I'm new and I'm just starting to learn cake decorating but I am trying to learn to make flowers out of frosting or royal icing what I want to know is there a recipe out there that i can make to just play with instead of always making frosting or icing to do this hope this makes sense.

If I understand you right.....you want an icing medium that you can keep for a long period of time is that right?

Buttercream - Wilton's recipe - is good. You can scrape it off and start over until it gets soooooooo bad you can't stand it anymoreicon_smile.gif That should take months.
Fondant is basically the same........oh wait, playDough is basically the same consistency etc so you can play with that.
If you don't want to keep the item just don't let it dry out - wad it up right after you take your pix and start over & over, & over.
