this was an experiment in 'make ahead of time royal icing decorations'
the dragon was piped using a small rose tip onto plastic wrap
the wings were piped seperately using a small round tip
because the wings dry much faster i was able to peel them off of the plastic and poke them into the still soft body of the dragon
in about two hours
the dragon was then airbrushed and left to dry for 3 days
he could then be peeled off the plastic wrap and used on a cake or other confections
