I can make a pipable icing with just powdered sugar and water? OR..I have a recipe for pourable cookie icing using corn syrup, water or milk, and PS. Could that be made to be pipable do you think?

I made RI butterfies for a bday cake and I am also bringing cupcakes for a little girl who is allergic to eggs and dairy. I will decorate them like the cake. I can always resort to piping the butterflies on the cupcakes, but i want to try to make them just like the RI butterflies so they stand up on the cupcakes.

I know I will have to experiment to see if I can make it happen...I am just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. TIA!

I've tried mixing sugar with water that I used for cookies, I just havn't tried piping it though. I've had a thick consistency of the said mixture but not too sure if it is strong enough.

Hope someone can help.

Have you considered making the butterlies out of candy? melted hard candy or press out starburst like a dough and cut out butterflies

Not sure about the icing - sorry!

I made the one with corn syrup, water, and PS...then I thought about it and called...the little girl lis allergic to corn syrup...glad i called! So I went with just PS and water. So far soo good, we will see how they dry.

The candy was a good idea as well...but starbursts have corn syrup in them anyway haha.

Wow! That would be hard to make something for someone that is allergic to a lot of things. I'm glad that it's working so far. Definitely let us know how it turns out! Good luck!
