Step 2: Creating 'apps'
Decide on the apps that you would like to be on your cake Make the apps using many different pre made royal icing colours ( this can be quite expensive but you can make the icing yourself as you only need a small amount of each colour) Cut squares of icing for the background of apps Use cut out shapes and icing pens to decorate apps
