Fall Leaves – Royal Icing Transfers

Royal icing transfers are a big time saver if you plan ahead. Once they’re dry, you can keep them on hand so that they’re ready for you to place on top of a cookie, cupcake, or even into a dollop of whipped cream on a slice of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving! You can see more Thanksgiving dessert tutorials from my friends Simply Bakings, The Squishy Monster, and Sweet y Salado on their YouTube channels.SweetAmbs-Fall-Leaves

Here’s what you’ll need for this project:

Watch the video below to see how to make these royal icing transfers:

When drying your transfers, place them in front of a fan so that they dry with a nice sheen. This will also help to ensure that your transfers dry quickly, which prevents them from becoming porous and fragile. Keep them in front of the fan for at least the first hour of drying time and allow them to dry completely (at least 8 hours) before removing them from the paper. Read this post on royal icing for more troubleshooting tips.

If you’re not going to be using the transfers right away, you can keep them in an airtight container for a few weeks until you’re ready to use them.

  2. Hi Amber! Thank you. I love all of your work. This was a pleasant surprise. I haven’t made this type transfer, but thought of trying it. I’m happy to see it come out so good and will go ahead and give it a try. I don’t like RI, its too sweet for me. I tasted a cookie (I rarely do) but because it looks like too much to me I wondered about taste. Jeepers! One bite and I was sickened. lol hahahhaaaaa Yuck. I thought about doing a thinner layer, which I plan on doing today. Love watching you and very happy for your success. Thanks for the heads up on the book and Craftsy, which I’ve been searching for you. lol Happy T Day to you!
