I just found out that you can use powdered gumpaste mix to make a flexible royal icing. I tried the baker's kitchen brand of g.p. mix and the instructions are on the bag. Usually when I pipe out decorations like snowflakes or monograms, they are so brittle that I have to make 2X as many as I need to cover for breakage. I piped out monograms onto greased parchment paper laid over a pattern I printed off the computer and the next day, they were rubbery when I peeled them off. I just stuck them onto the cake! Very cool! try it, it works.
