I have a queation about color flow icing and I hope someone can help. How long can you keep and where do you store the icing if you have leftover from a project? I was told you can't keep it, but I can't find anything in the wilton books or the class books I teach from. I am going to also email Wilton, but I wanted to try the great minds here first hoping to get a quicker respone and probably and more truthful answer.

Thanks

Hey Letseatcake,

I make my color flow ahead of time so when I need it I just open it up. I store it in a mason (jelly) jar, cover with saran wrap & then the jar lid. I store it in my pantry. You could put it in a cabinet too. I don't know how long it will stay good. I have had mine stored for over a month & it still worked when I needed it. Maybe someone else can tell you about the self life. I just live & learn with all my icings. Something that lasts long for me might not last long with someone else. Hope this helps you~
