Topic: Royal Icing piping templates
vickeytap 05/28/2008 4:46 PM
Hi Guys,

Right I want to practice my piping technique and get a bit more detailed. Does anyone know if there are are any work sheets or templates that I can get to practice this.
I really want to get more fine work like lacework, scrolls, handles, corness and even eventually want to be able pipe cherubs. Want to concentrate on the builing up af layers on the designs if that makes sense. Really back to basics before cutter and sugarpaste ( don't get me wrong I love that as well). But I really admire Eddie Spence's piping work who does the queen of englands cakes. (He's work is amazing!!)

So if anyone could help or give me some advice.
Thanks everyone xxx

Hi there, I have been lucky enough to have 2 lessons with this wonderful man who's work is absolutely amazing!! Are you in the UK? Here is a link with some of his tips
it's not much!

The last course I did with him (2 days) "Royal Icing Master Class" he gave us some stencils and templates, quite alot I can try and scan some of them and get them to you if you send me your email address. My email is I also took pictures of his work like his cheerubs and flowers, and figures I will try and scan them in and send to you for your info!

Good luck once you got the jist of it, it truly is amazing the pipe work you can do with royal simply is beautiful!

The first 2 pics are things he taught us in one of his classes I think it was the flower piping class.

I know you are looking for run out work and stencils but I also attach some of Eddie's actual piped flowers!
