This is not only beautiful, it’s vegan too 🙂
Royal icing is not the sort of icing that you use to cover a cake.
It dries hard, but the meringue within it keeps it lightweight, making it just right for making flowers or other piped, edible decorations in advance, to be placed onto a cake later on.
Royal icing is also used to glue together the pieces of gingerbread houses, and to adorn them with snow-covered rooftops and hanging icicles.
Once made and fully dried, royal icing decorations will keep indefinitely.
Store them in an air-tight container and keep them out of the light so the colors won’t fade, and you’ll have decorations ready to go at a moment’s notice.
You can even pipe tiny little flowers onto sugar cubes and serve them at your next fancy tea party, or at bridal shower.
Make sure to pull out the silver sugar tongs for perfectly proper serving…or package them up…
