    Hi Chef Sedar! I used your royal icing recipe with egg white powder and used a standard mixer per the instructions. However, it turned out runny, not creamy like yours. Is there a remedy to this? i tried to add a little more sugar icing, but it is still runny. If not, should i redo the whole thing by mixing it by hand??

    Thank you!

    1. Grace Gose says:

      My apologies. When i measured the ingredients and started mixing the sugar and the egg white powder, i did not add all sugar to the bowl. There was about 200 grams of sugar left in another container. So i mixed that again this morning.

      Thank you!

  2. Anne Ramos says:

    QUESTION Chef! I have to pipe a whole poem on a cake. Any suggestions on how to ensure that i can pipe it in a straight manner per line? Thank you!!! 🙂

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      If it has to be written on the cake directly. Take a measurement of available space and duplicate on a paper. Study the spacing with pencil then with chocolate and make all the decisions before hand. Place a light paper ruler on a cake and work it out line at a time by moving down. Follow your exercised spacing. Small cones used by 3 finger tips is the way to go.

    I will buy this tutorial but am wondering if these techniques only apply to royal icing. I would like to pipe in buttercream because I think the cake would cut nicer and taste better, yes?

    Your piping work is just amazing. I will try to emulate what you do but don’t expect it to be a success. However I will TRY! Thanks for the useful tips.

  7. vasanti rego says:

    You make it look so easy. You need a lot of hand movement practice in this piping and how hard to squeeze the icing out. this is my weakness.

  8. Meena bhatt says:

    How can we work patters on a buttercream cake? Won’t the paper stick on it while we put markings? Any idea or suggestions on that Chef?

    1. Serdar Yener says:

      You place the cake in the fridge after masking. when you take it out surface will hard enough for a while to handle the pattern marking .Thanks .Do it gently
