will it keep that long on the counter? can it be refrigerated?

I'm giving you another bump dandelion...I've used it and love it...but it didn't stick around long enough to store because the kids gobbled it down!! icon_surprised.gif Maybe Cake_Princess will see this and she will probably know.


Hugs to you! ~Denise

I haven't made this icing, but given the inredients I would imagine it needs to go in the refrigerator if you have left over. So, it will probably keep for a few weeks in the refrigrator and then let come back to room temp and rewhip before using leftovers.

thank you all so much!
i ended up not making the icing last night because i didn't want to risk it going bad if i left it on the counter or doing weird stuff if i put it in the fridge.
i'm going to make it today for sure though icon_lol.gif
i'll try putting it in the fridge...hopefully it doesn't go weird on me.

I had a batch from two weeks ago that I placed in an air tight container with a piece of plastic wrap on the surface of the icing to keep it from crusting over. Then I stuck it in a bag and placed it in the freezer. It thawed beautifully and still tasted great. I just used my small spatula to re-work it.

I would suggest placing it in an air tight container like I did and placing it in the fridge until you are ready to use it. It would be fine on the countertop but remember heat affects this icing so if you are in a hot area then definately the fridge.

I just saw this today. Sorry. I've got a batch that I colored and put in decorating bags. Used them three or four days ago. Then, again yesterday. They were fine today. I just poked a toothpick in the opening to break loose any hardened icing and it was just fine. I'm betting they'll remain OK as long as they don't dry out.

I was thinking (uh oh...) today, I would like to substitute the butter in this with cream cheese, that would taste awesome on a chocolate cookie. What does everyone think?

Zamode...I find your avatar puts me in a trance! icon_eek.giffollow the bouncing ball...icon_lol.gif

Crimsicle...Who is that on your avatars??

I need to try this recipe. Everytime I pipe a border (a dam) to flood my cookies, whether it's royal icing or Toba Garrett's, I get air bubbles that emerge after it's too late to do anything about it. I think I'm the only one that has this problem. icon_confused.gif
I need to go back to card-making. It's got less calories too!

You know this recipe has a slight cream cheese taste to it already right?

Because there is butter in it, you should go with 3 days at room temperatures below 75F or refrigerate or freeze. Sometimes 4-5 days will be ok but if you are using salted butter, the salt actually adds to the preservative quality of the sugar and butter is usually recommended at 3 days although sometimes safe longer. Remember the melting point of butter is 83F.
Hi Princeypoo!

Sounds like you are beating the icing at a high speed. Slow it down some. Or use a spatula to work the icing to eliminate the bubbles.

LOL calories are good. LOL

Hi SQC Ma!!!

LOL...Clay Aiken. I like to use pix I've taken of him myself. But, someone pointed out earlier that it looks like he's making an obscene gesture. Actually, it's a "come hither" thing. I need to go back to the vault....


Edited - There! That's better! icon_smile.gif
