    Default Ready made icing??

    Hi everyone.

    I have decided what cake i will be making for DS first birthday and require ready made icing, also think its called plastic icing? Problem is i cant get it from anywhere here and was wondering if any one has a simple recipe for it? The ones i found so far seem really difficult

    We are also going to be going to Perth in 2 wks so if anyone knows where to get it pls let me know.



    I have looked in IGA and woolworths here (the only shops we have). I was really sure woolies used to have it when i worked there.

    Thanks heaps

    I think it's called Royal Icing and it comes in a box. I bought it from my Safeway store(your Woolworths). Good luck finding it.

    ebay may be another option if you can't get to the shops or can't find any? I have bought a few cake supplies from ebay as our local woolies sucks!

    No, Royal Icing is the kind that goes hard when dried. it has eggwhites in it. It's the kind used for the little flowers you can buy for cupcakes etc.
    What you want is a soft icing.
    Here's one recipe: Soft icing - Better Homes and Gardens
    I actually have a packet of the Woolworths Ready Made Icing left (My DD turned 1 a couple of weeks ago). If you want, I can send it to you. I don't even want money. It's just taking up cupboard space anyway. Just PM me your address.
    Oh, and I promise, I'm no creep, I won't stalk you or anything
