    Hi Sofia,

    Yes, royal icing does dry to a matte finish. If you want a shine, you can add some corn syrup tot he RI, but for a lot of shine, you really need to use a glace recipe instead of a RI recipe.

    I've used anywhere between 2 tablespoons to 1/3 cup for a whole batch of RI with no "ill effects" - drying time and stack-ability are the same.

    Try glucose as a substitution.
    Insert wonderfully creative signature here …
