I am starting Course 2 of the Wilton class at Michaels tomorrow. I was told to make some Royal Icing for the first class. I work tomorrow during the day, so I have to make the icing tonight. How should I store it overnight and throughout the day, so it is still good for making flowers in class?

I am using the Wilton Meringue Powder recipe. Can it/should it be refridgerated?

I just put mine in a tupperware container with a piece of plastic wrap between the conainer and lid. I just stir it up a little before using it. It doesn't need to be refrigerated. It always works great. thumbs_up.gif

should the plastic wrap be right on top of the icing to keep air out or does it matter?

just across the container is fine. Good luck with royal. Making flowers in where the fun begins in the wilton classes I think!

I just put mine in an air tight container as well. I was never told to use plastic over it before putting the lid on and I've never had any problems. Have fun at class!
