I am looking for ideas on how to make a royal icing alligator. It will go on a cupcake (actually almost 200 cupcakes). Because of the large number of cupcakes, I want to be able to do as much ahead of time as I can.
Fancy Flours has the perfect alligator but I want try and make them myself before buying. Here they are: http://www.fancyflours.com/product/Icing-Safari-Alligators-Set-of-18
Or plan B is to make chocolate alligators using a mold and putting them on the cupcakes.
