Two questions:

I was just going to ask how the royal icing gets hard if its touching the greased surface?

I know that when using royal for pretty much anything, your containers and tips have to be completely grease free or it won't set up.

Would it peel off of parchment paper easier than waxed paper?

Another question, I want to do a monogram in royal icing and then luster dust it when dry. The problem is, I need to freeze the cake because I"m leaving for the wedding before she needs the cake.

When the cake thaws, will the moisture from the cake melt the monogram??

Thanks for your advice guys but I am a bit of a novice - how do you melt candy?

I put the candymelts in a little bowl and put in the microwave-some put them in a candybottle (looks like catsup/mustard bottle), some use the candy bags (clear triangular bags you cut the tip off of)-I like the bowl because I can control it a bit better-I only go 15 sec at a time and stir the melts as they melt.. .....As far as the monogram on a frozen cake...I can't help you with that-I don't freeze mine so don't know how it will be affected.
What you do may be a "little thing" but "little things" add to alot!

I have the letter press and absolutly hate it. I have tried it with just the letters without the bar, and still just don't like it.

I have heard that you can transfer an image to a cake with piping gel. Not real sure how that works, but could you also use that for writing?

I have the same problem. I am fairly new at decorating cakes but cannot write on a cake to save my life. I have been using a very small star tip and just printing it out on the cake. It looks ok. I hope to be able to do writing real soon.

I was thinking about that too, but i wasn't sure if it would make the writing bleed a bit...anyone know?
