Practice icing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I got a good idea for a 'cookie dummy' to practice on so I dont have to bake up a bunch of cookies to practice decorating on (Thanks, Lalana icon_biggrin.gif ).... Anyone know of a good substitute for royal icing that I can practice with? Something of the same consistency that will dry hard? icon_biggrin.gif

LOL...here is my moms icing too...guess I should have included that with the dummy dough recipe!!

simple practice icing

1 cup of shortening
3 to 4 cups of powdered sugar
water (to reach a smooth consistency).
storable at room temperature and will not spoil since it does not contain any perishable ingredients.

Its NASTY icon_eek.gif tasting, therefore dont eat it!! tapedshut.gif

well, I don't know what you're practicing with and if you are eating it, but I play with my daughter's glue like its icing and fill in the middle. But that's just goofing off.

I like practing making royal icing. I would practice decorating on 4 cookies at a time. The more you practice, the better you get.

Then, I gave my cookies to family and freinds, to get feed back. They loved it.
