Cake Decorating Schedule:

You will need to cover your cake or cake dummy several days prior to decorating. (I prefer the fondant covered cake versus royal icing coved cake, for taste.)

You can dust your cake directly after covering your cake (this is only for fondant cakes,) if you choose to cover the cake with royal icing you will need to wait until the icing is completely dry.

Pipe your toothpick roses and blossoms the same day you cover your cake (if you need a refresher on how to pipe the roses visit Royal Icing Rose Garden and the blossom tutorial can found at Royal Icing and Piping Flowers). Prepare your royal icing the day you are planing to decorate the cake. If you have extra time you might want to watch Having Fun With Lambeth Method of Cake Decorating. The video teaches how to over pipe boarders.

Royal Icing Designs:
I brushed a mixture of petal dusts to achieve that antique blush pink colour for the cake. Remember to attach the cake board and pipe the border prior to decorating your cake!
The String work: Pressure Piping medium/soft peak

Tips for Success:
Change your royal bag every 20 minutes
Sit in a comfortable upright position, unless you need to stand to pipe the top
Be sure your bag is in the correct position and your royal icing is the right consistency and most important relax, be patience (learning anything new takes time), , and practice correctly.
