    Fondant is generally used for decorations and icing cake, marzipan is used for the layer between cake and fondant like traditionally used in wedding cakes

    No no no not royal icing... that's made from egg white and it's a binding icing...

    Like a piped icing.

    You need plastic icing or fondant. White Orchard is the supermarket brand (same brand as the marzipan).
