Tutorial - How to Decorate Orioles and Robins with Royal Icing
Would you like to make these birds with me?
Outline the birds. Allow to dry for a few minutes before flooding.
Flood the head area with one color and the body with another. Use a toothpick or boo boo stick to feather the icing colors together.
Pipe a beak.
Immediately drop a black pearl onto the wet icing for an eye.
Pipe a dot of white icing then drop a black pearl into that for the eye.
Once the base icing has had time to dry, pipe wings on top.
To make the feathers:
Pipe lines across the wing.
Using a toothpick or boo boo stick, drag the icing in an upwards direction, through the lines.
Pipe lines for the tail feathers.
