Baked By Dave’s Royal Icing Calculator

Oct 22, 2021 | Cookie Decorating Resources | 6 comments

My friend Dave of Baked by Dave has given the cookie decorating community a huge gift: his royal icing calculator.

One of the challenges of decorating cookies is estimating how much icing you’ll need for a project: make too much and it’s wasteful. Make too little, and you have to color match again; what a nightmare! Dave is relatively new to cookie decorating (less than 2 years in!) but he’s already made a huge impact in the cookie and macaron communities – I feel pretty lucky to know him!

Dave (whom I met for the first time at Cookie Con Dallas) is graciously sharing this resource with you all. Please watch the video in its entirety to understand how to use this calculator. And if you’d like to show Dave some support, follow him on IG! And of course, give the video a thumbs up on YouTube. It’s worth the 17 minute time investment, I promise.

Download the Calculator HERE. Make sure you save a copy on either your local machine or on the cloud.

Dave and I also sat down for a deeper chat, in case anyone is curious and wants to get to know Dave a bit more:
