making eyes

This was easy.

Make little white dots using a basic royal icing. I use 1 cup+ icing sugar to 1 egg white. You want it fairly firm to keep a nice round shape but not too firm or you will get mountains. Let them dry a little-I left them for an hour.
Then add little black dots. Just a touch will due. Wouldn't a colour be nice time!
I like my pupils raised a bit.
I also generally make a few more than I need so I can make good eyeball matches. (and a few are rejects)
They need to dry a really long time to be hard enough to stack-I left mine out for 3 days before I used them.
