  9. Prepare royal icing and split it into nine bowls. With the use of food paste coloring, color each part a different color depending on your desired design, leaving one white. 
  10. Save the bowls wrapped with plastic wrap to stop frosting from drying out while not in use. 
  11. Fondle half of each color into a small piping bag and the remaining half of each color with 1 tsp of water continuously it has the texture of somewhat whipped cream. 
  12. Spoon each reduced color into separate piping bags.
