Today's post is a shout out to The Beaver State: Oregon! Beavers already look like balls of icing; just look at a beaver skeleton! This makes them exceptionally easy to render in icing. All you'll need to pipe beavers is stiff consistency brown royal icing, round tips #12 and #5, a glue stick, parchment paper squares, a black food-safe marker like AmeriColor's Gourmet Writers, a flower nail, a Styrofoam block to rest the nail in, and a dusting pouch filled with a 50/50 mix of cornstarch and powdered sugar. Start by sticking a parchment square to the flower nail with a dab from the glue stick.
