Royal icing flowers

One of the best parts about working at Wilton is that I have a lot of new learning opportunities that were not available to me previously. Or, at least, they were not as accessible as they are now. During my first few months with the company, I had an opportunity to take one of the cake decorating classes featuring royal icing flowers.

You would never necessarily eat royal icing (though it is technically 'edible,' it dries very hard), but it is a great medium for making flowers ahead of time, because they keep for months!

Below are some of the types of flowers I learned, as well as the final cake I made. Apologies for the bad cell phone pictures!
