Victorian Style Cake design. Royal Icing and Fondant.
In my eternal study of cake decorating, my latest obsession involves delving into the history and beginning of cake.
So far I have learned that it began in the ages of kings and queens from this I realize where the name “royal” icing must have come from. Before fondant and before soft buttercream icings, fruit cake was covered in royal icing, a simple mixture of two ingredients confectioner sugar also known as icing sugar and egg whites. And with such a pure and simple medium, I am amazed that so much can be created with it!
I’m very grateful for all the cake decorators I have had a chance to meet, whether they be beginners or professionals. I find that these are all people of kind hearts and of giving and they have taught me so much.
