When I've used Royal Icing in the past it can take up to 2 days to set and as I was decorating the cookies for the next morning I had to have something that set overnight. This did set overnight, held sprinkles fabulously, was easy to pipe and kept its shape. I didn't think it was too sweet, I added half almond half vanilla flavoring. The reason I gave it 3 stars is that it separated... I added rose petal pink wilton gel coloring and mixed well and the color separated. It looked almost marbled (although not as pretty). I know that shortening can cause this sometimes but I was using all vegetable shortening and all my ingredients were fresh. It was even a new pot of gel color, I had to remove the foil seal. In reading the other reviews noone else mentioned this so I'm not sure what I did wrong.
