I have read that royal icing becomes really hard on drying. Is it hard candy like?
I have also read that royal icing stays soft from inside and crusty on the outside (for writing piping) when corn syrup is added to the recipe.
The other day I saw a video that said that they used royal icing for icing a cake.
I wanted to know whether it is a good idea to ice a cake with royal icing and does it taste good? I thought that royal icing was just used to ice cookies.
