Topic: Music Notes out of Royal Icing
morgansmommy 01/24/2010 6:49 PM
If I want to make small little music notes out of royal icing (to save time on decorating on cake) would I just pipe them on wax paper? I just need a second opinion if I'm right by doing this. Thanks ya'll

Wax paper will work.

You can also use a chocolate mold for them. slice-heaven sells one. I used it when I made a cake to celebrate my daughter's Masters degree in Music. I'll attach the link to the thread, but you really can't see the notes all that well. Just another idea.

Seems like to me that it would be more time and trouble to make them ahead of time instead of just piping them right onto the cake. I assume they would be lying flat either on top or on the sides?

I guess that depends. It depends on if you want them vertical on the cake (as in a cake topper) or do you want them attached to the sides of the cake ........OR do you want then laying flat on the surface of the cake??

thanks ya'll--and bunny it's for a Elmo cake so I'm not worried on the direction haha! It's for my daughter, so I can have fun my way!!! Thanks again ya'll!!! Oh I just figured if I do them ahead being I get tense when I make cakes anyways (guess b/c I'm still new) all I will have to worry about the day of decorating the cake is just icing it and putting on my decorations!
