I’m a little confused.  I read in Rose’s book that grease breaks down royal icing.  Does that also apply to piped royal icing on top of buttercream frosting?  I have a friend that I’m making a baby shower cake and she want buttercream with a royal icing message on it.  Will it melt on it? Maybe I should use something else???

That makes sense.  Same concept as when whipping meringue you canmixit with butter to make meringue buttercream, but not while whixking the whites to make the initial meringue.  I will try and thanks for your advice I’ll keep it in mind and make a trial mini cake and see what happens smile
