I attended my first lesson on my 4 week cake decorating course. This course is to make celebration minature cakes. This first week was learning the required piping skills. I learnt how to make royal icing and piping bags and then practiced piping shells and stars and lines. Not too bad for my first attempt.
I also have been a bit of a swot… at the end of the class she demonstrated sugar roses that we would be doing next week. I couldn’t resist coming home and having a go and the result was not too bad. But I will wait till next week to put up a photo.
So here’s the recipe I used for Royal Icing;
1Kg icing sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
Sieve any lumps from meri-white + beat together with water. Add 3/4 of the icing sugar and beat 4-5 mins. Cover under clingfilm and keep airtight.
