DIY Royal Icing Googly Eyes - Use flooding consistency, 5-10 sec to get smooth; have both colors ready, they won't bleed - Black icing: make a batch using some cocoa powder instead of powdered sugar. Will use less dye. Or first add a dark dye, like blue or brown and then add black. Americolor is the best color
baked in flat, even layers (thanks so the wet towel/cake diaper trick) and they all baked in exactly 50 minutes, no matter which pan size. Even the big 10-inch baked evenly all the way to the middle without a heating core or anything.
