In this lesson, the instructor tells you the way of adjusting a consistency of royal icing
with some useful tips.

After making royal icing, you need to adjust its consistency
depending on your decorating needs or purposes.

Icing for piping lines should be stiffer so that it can keep its shape.
Icing for flooding, on the other hand, should be runnier and easily extensible
so that it fills in an area nicely.

The consistency of icing is so important for icing cookies.
Even the slightest mistake of the water amount in icing
can cause you a trouble in making beautiful decorations.

In this lesson, the instructor tells you how to adjust royal icing consistency from scratch

if you can do the adjustments explained in this lesson.

and improve their qualities.
