I consider royal icing my cake super glue—it just helps everything stick together! When water or piping gel won’t cut it, royal icing is the sturdiest of edible glues. I always have a container of it kicking around in the fridge. It’s perfect for attaching fondant details, hiding flaws, patching, and covering up fondant seams on white cakes. And it’s incredibly easy to make—just two ingredients and a little time in the stand mixer. Best of all? While it sticks like crazy to cake, it won’t stick your fingers together, unlike regular super glue!
*Cake Tips: If you make your royal icing before you're ready for it, keep the bowl it's in covered with a damp cloth until you need it. If you find your icing too runny, you can further stiffen it by adding more icing sugar. *
