Took time off to learn a new skill from THE royal icing expert, Eddie Spence. Eddie is the author of The Art of Royal Icing which was published in March this year and he also made Princess Diana and Prince Charles’s wedding cake. He was brought in by ICCA end September 2010.
Here are some of Eddie’s work.
Am so impressed with his piping skills. Eddie is already 80+ and yet his hands are more steady than ours when it comes to creating his master pieces. I love this eagle which he piped from royal icing.
Here’s a picture of my unfinished work. Only realised that those little intricate designs on my royal icing collar broke when I was assembling them on the cake. Gotta find time to finish up the rest. Piped lots and lots of bead border using tip #1. Hands were aching after that, but love the final effect 🙂
