SugarDeaux Fast Dry, Quick Royal Icing

Posted by SugarDeaux Like so many other cookie decorators, I have struggled to find the best Royal Icing to suit my taste and fit my style of decorating. I have tried every recipe out there and found success with a few. None of them though, quite fit my style of decorating-which happens to be impatient! I'm not a fan of hurry up and wait!! Plus, the humid climate in New Orleans isn't kind to RI and that problem was a challenge as well. So, after working in my "cookie lab" lol- I have finally come up with a recipe that is consistent, quick, tastes great and is a... read more

All butter American buttercream

Posted by megpi This recipe took a bit of trial and error working, so it's kind of my baby, but I don't mind sharing.
