I'm desperate-

I made and broke a 7 inch royal icing cross, that was to be used on top of a 3 tier Christening cake for tomorrow aftermoon- I have NO idea why I didnt make extra0 I know better!

My question is, is there any way to help the drying process of the royal icing?

My last resort might have to be to make it out of fondant- maybe the way some of the tiaras are made- with an extruder-- will that dry in time?

So much for rushing--

Thanks for any help

You can put the royal icing cross to dry in a very low oven. It will take make maybe 2-3 hrs depends on the thicknes. I think if you are in a rush its better to make it with gumpaste and add more tylose.

You can "glue" it back together using egg whites.
