I absolutely love the sweet bunny faces. Adorable! Your piping looks effortless in all your work.  What do you find to be your ideal piping consistency? Do you follow a specific RI recipe or have you tweaked recipes to come up with your own? I have found that adding light corn syrup and/or glycerin are key ingredients for smooth lines. Would love to know your recipe!

 

Thanks so very much

Thank you Carol, it is the recipe I originally got from Julia's book.So easy none of the problems seems others are always struggling with. 2# powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or flavoring of your liking 10 Tablespoon of liquid pasteurized egg whites. I beat mine with the paddle attachment on high for 4-5 minutes. For my piping I like it thinned just until soft peaks. I have an idea I may use my icing a little stiffer than most that seems to work best for me.  

 

 

Thanks so very much

 Thank you and your welcome, practice makes it fun and so much easier. I use a tip, haven't had the patience to conquer the parchment...
