Royal Icing /STEP BY STEP PHOTO TUTORIAL/
Glace Icing by Toba Garrett
This is another icing that I have tried few times.It is beautiful and tastes really delicious as well.This icing results in shinier finish than royal icing, it never really dries as hard as royal icing, yet when left to dry for sufficient time /at least 8 hours/ cookies decorated with this icing can be packaged in bags, when stacking I recommend using a wax paper between each layer.
When making cookies with this icing I had an issue with white spots appearing on some of the cookies, this can be prevented by adding a few drops of liquid whitener into the icing when mixing it.
ribbons and such I recommend using royal icing as "adhesive".
