I set out to do some more practicing this week with Royal Icing.
But as many of you know...
Most of the U.S experienced EXTREME heat and humidity last week.
This made my Royal Icing a BEAR to work with.
I had no idea weather played such a key role in icing.
It was "fluffy".
I thinned it.
It was runny.
It was everything it SHOULDN'T have been.
These "star" technique cookies were about the only ones I was happy with.
They turned out half decent.
Except once the icing dried...
It had a very ODD texture.
Royal Icing is a VERY temperamental thing I'm learning.
None the less, I got some more experience.
Maybe not "good" experience.
But I got to play around.
If you can't have fun...
What good is it?
