I am all very new to cake decorating and for my sons 3rd birthday I wanted to make his cake and make the figures to go on the cake (Darth Maul, Darth Vader and Yoda).
However, I'm been trying to research about what icing to use and I'm getting so confused! I currently have Renshaw Regal Icing to make the figures with - can I use this to make the figures with and if so how long in advance can I make them?
Also, I will be looking to ice the cake, would the regal icing be okay to roll out and put over the sponge?
I'm really sorry if these are silly questions, I would love to find out more about making cakes and decorating them - I seem to be falling at the first hurdle though, there are so many different icings!
If anyone can recommend any books or anything at all to help me with my mission, I would be very grateful.
Thank you in advance
