royal icing is very easy- you can get meringue powder at any michael's or any other type of cake supply place. it's just that, water and powdered sugar. another thing you can use is gum arabic and water. (mostly sold in specialty cake supply stores - my michaels' doesn't carry this). both of these things have worked for me... also, maybe reinforcing with a tootpick next time before the stuff dries... good luck- and i can't wait to see it- my 3 year old is OBSESSED with all things toy story! icon_smile.gif

Tylose powder is a great glue. Wilton makes Gum-Tex which is basically the same thing and you can find it at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and even at Wal-Mart sometimes. You just mix it with a little water and it makes a great glue. I traveled over 250 miles with a cake decorated with delicate fall leaves and not one fell off.

I knew you all could come through for me...I do have the dried eggwhite, and also have the tylose...whoopee don't have to run back to cake supply store. Appreciate your help.
