Renshaw Americas Brand Associate Partner, Reva Alexander-Hawk, shares a stunning tutorial for elegant royal-iced cookies. The beautiful cookies use the Renshaw Americas Shelf-Stable Royal Icing, which is a ready-made product developed for busy bakers and cakers. Reva notes, “I love the Renshaw and Rainbow dust product lines, and the royal icing is a must have. It’s so convenient to be able to use a high quality off-the-shelf product without having to make a batch from scratch every-time I need a little icing for a project.” The Renshaw Royal Icing was developed with Brand Ambassador, Nicholas Lodge, and can be used on cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and more for everything from string work to stenciling.
