Baptism Dress

This is a dress cake made for a good friend's daughter who was getting baptised. The cake is covered in fondant and I attempted to do the trip work all out of royal icing. However, when I started moving the royal icing pieces to the cake they just crumbled into pieces :( Major frustration! I knew they would be delicate, but there was no way. So, I accepted that that idea would work and instead did all of the detail work out of piped buttercream. I used the same design and I used for the royal icing.

Here is a picture of the royal icing lace I made that crumbled :( (Before it crumbled)
