How To Make A Royal Icing Tiara
Posted by carrielynnfields
In making this tutorial to teach you all how to put together tiaras I learned a few things in the process as well.
#1. When making a tiara with a lot of dots such as this one, ALWAYS start off with using JUST lines for at least the first layer for structure, using just dots as I did will ensure that it will break when unmolding it as you can see in the picture. Next time I will just use the small dots on the last layer of RI or chocolate.#2. If your tiara has many open spaces as this one does, make sure that your Royal Icing (RI) or chocolate is strong and do as few layers as you can try to limit it to three. When the layering is so visible it is not as pretty. Tip: These Royal Icing Tiara's look great on top of a Pillow Cake. It will make your princess cake or queen cake just perfect! Items Needed:
Get together all ingredients... stiff royal icing, tips #2 and #3. A small cup of water and paintbrush, wax paper, a lipless container (to ensure ease of removal once the beautiful tiara is finished), your pattern, a towel to rest your container on if it is easier to pipe with it laying down to start (it is for me) and tape.
Wrap your pattern around the appropriate sized container, I personally like tupperware containers because of the varying sizes and smooth bases. Tape the pattern in place, this ensures it doesn't slip later.
Tape the wax paper over the pattern, I like to fold my wax paper in half, it gives it a bit more stability and I know it will not crumple on me when I set the container upright.Tape the wax paper onto the container so it wont slip.
Start to pipe over your pattern making sure you have as many lines, etc..touching eachother to make it more sturdy. I usually start mine with it laying on a towel till I can not turn it anymore, I am usually shakiest in the beginning till I get the groove going. Then I prop it up on my turntable and what ever other thing I can use to make it the comfortable height for me to pipe
If you find you are making peaks with your icing you can gently tamp them down with a damp paintbrush or with just a little bit of cornstarch on your finger
once you have piped over your pattern allow it to dry at least 2 hours.
Pipe over the tiara again, allow to dry and repeat. You want at least 3 layers to give it some strenghth for when you take it off of its container. I usually allow my completed tiaras to dry at least a full 24-36 hours. If I have more time I give it more. Better safe than sorry right?
When completely dry, carefully remove the tape from the container and the wax paper. Slide tiara carefully off. Peel back the wax paper, and ta dah!!! you have a tiara. At this point if you want you may paint it with luster dusts, pearl dusts, sparkle dusts.
HOW TO REPAIR A BROKEN TIARAIf your tiara should break the first time you try this technique (and chances are it will!) Not to worry!! Repairing your tiara only takes a few minutes.
Set the broken peices back into place, and trace more royal icing in the broken cracks. Then wait for it to dry.Depending on the breakage, sometimes its faster to simply start over.
