As you can see from this up-close-and-personal view of Julia’s embossed ornament cookie, piping with SugarVeil Confectionery Icing (the same material used to make edible cake lace) has a couple of advantages relative to piping with royal icing. First, the icing won’t crater in small spaces like those on the sphere. And, second, the icing dries super shiny under any ambient conditions. Yes, the icing looks almost wet here, but that’s the normal air-dried look of SugarVeil Icing. For the instructions to make this ornament, see Julia’s YouTube video.
