You will need some foil and Topiary Molds (available at most Crafty Supply Shops or Flower Markets).

  • Beat powderd egg whites, with a eletric mixer,the water and cream of tartar until combined.
  • Add the sugar slowly and beat at medium speed until combined. Increase speed to high and beat until icing is thick and flossy, about 5 minutes.
  • Wrap styrofoam topiaries with foil.
  • Use the Royal icing as your 'glue'. Spread icing directly onto the foil and stick the cookies on. Start from the base and work your way up, 'glueing' a small amount at a time (this prevents the icing from drying out.)
  • Continue until you reach the top of the topiary mold.
