You will need

To decorate:

  • icing sugar
  • edible gold paste colour or dust
  • vodka (if using the gold dust)
  • edible glue
  • white sugar florist paste


  • royal crown shapes mould
  • fine brush
  • rolling pin
  • sharp knife


Sprinkle some icing sugar into your royal crown shapes mould.
Take a small ball of sugar florist paste and place it inside the royal shape you prefer.
With your rolling pin, roll out the small ball inside your chosen shape. Be careful not to have any paste outside the borders of your shape. If you do, cut out the unwanted pieces with a sharp knife until your shape is as clear as in the picture.
Paint the crown gold using some edible gold paste colour. If you don’t have the paste, you can easily use some gold dust and mix it with a little bit of vodka until the dust becomes liquid. Use a fine brush to paint the crown.
Have fun by making different crown shapes! You can add some royal icing dots, or other sugar paste decorations if you like.
