Which is better are or both icings the same? I am making X-Mas cookies for the 1st time this year and saw on Wilton's site a recipe for Color Flow Icing for cookie decorating. Any opinions on either royal vs color flow?? Thanks!!!!

As far as I'm concerned thinned RI is the same a color flow.

I've used both. Wilton says that color flow dries with a bit of a sheen where royal doesn't. I've never compared them side by side, so I'm not sure.

The Wilton color flow has a lovely bright sheen, but it's expensive. To duplicate with RI, shouldn't you be able to add Karo for Sheen?
