I made a batch of R.I. that I hope I don't have to toss. It's got bits and lumps in it. Nothing too bad but I'm afraid when I color it, it will be really obvious. I think it might be because I had to stop and take care of my daughter mid-process. I don't want to waste a whole bag of P.S.
Should I just toss it or is it salvageable?
try adding a little water and just mix with your mixer. if that doesn't work, push the icing through a sieve to trap the lumps.
This could be from not sifting your powdered sugar but probably from stopping mid way through. Royal dries out very quickly, if you have to stop while making it then put a damp kitchen towel over the bowl it should help it stay soft. And if you plan on using this for piping make sure you get all the lumps out or it will clog your tip.
I sifted, so it must be from stopping for a few in between. It's probably going to be a huge pain trying to get the lumps out. UGH
