Figuring out how to pipe letters on to my cupcakes and cakes was one of the best things that ever happened to me – no joke! Now I can apply the principles of piping to almost any pattern or image or picture, though it did take a while of practising. Give this a go and learn how to transform your bakes in to personalised masterpieces!

Recipe for Royal Icing –
400g icing sugar, sifted
15g powdered egg white (or 1/2 an actual egg white)
4-5 tbs water

You will also need piping bags, a no.2 tip/nozzle/tube, food colour paste, some greasproof paper, sugar paste circles if you want.

    I don’t have a scale. Could you tell me how much (in cups) sugar and meringue powder I need?

  2. Macca Lives says:

    This was so helpful, Jemma! I've done my first practice run yesterday. My icing was a bit too stiff, but your tips made sure I managed to get some cursive writing done within 20-30 minutes of drawing my first ever line of icing. Managed some lovely snow crystal designs too, which is exactly what I'll need for the Xmas cake I'm making next week. I know this is an oldie, and you're not going to read my comment, but I wanted to thank you anyway!

  24. Lauren Jackson says:

    Regarding royal icing: would you want it the same consistency or a bit looser for filling the area of say a sugar cookie?

  25. Wheng Sarmiento says:

    For actual egg white 1/2 means? 7.5 grams?

  26. Tawana Bellinger says:

    Can you do a masterclass on how to make piping gel .

  27. realpinkmonkey says:

    Wait. I had to stop the video right away. Are you saying people call you Jenna?? I mean, it’s stimuli, buuuut it SAYS Jemma and you always say your name lol. However I will add, when I typed your name, Jemma, auto correct changed it to Jenna so maybe that’s what’s happening 🤷🏽‍♀️
