This weekend in Melbourne we celebrate the Queens Birthday. Although a cake would be fitting to celebrate the occasion, I have a Crown made out of icing instead. The basic designed is piped with a clay gun and the little beads added with royal icing. The necklace consists of tiny fondant balls and the ring was piped and painted bronze. If you would like more information on how this was done, please send me an e-mail and I will do a full tutorial if there is enough interest.
