Hi everyone,
I am planning on making my mom and mother in law a mothers day cake using lots of royal icing daisies. I would like to make these in advance and freeze them if possible. Can I freeze them and if so how should I do it? Also if you can freeze them, how long can they be frozen? Do I let them thaw completely before putting them on the cake or can I put them on frozen?
Thanks!

I'm not sure why you would freeze them since royal will dry as hard as candy and remain good to use as long as you don't store them in an air tight container and keep the dust off them.

I store my royal flowers in egg cartons in a cupboard!

Okay! I wasn't sure about freezing royal icing. Thanks!

Noo! Don't freeze RI - the moisture will soften them. icon_smile.gif They'll keep forever in an airtight container. OK, maybe nearly forever icon_wink.gif

The royal icing will actually hold up from th freezing. Back home in the Caribbean the bride actually freeze the top tier that's covered in royal icing.

However, you can just place your daisies in airtight containers.

RI can be stored at room temperature for about a year in a breathable container. I store mine in a wicker looking basket if that helps. If RI is frozen, upon defrost the icing will break down and become very shiny.

I've had about a dozen panoramic eggs for over 30 years. The royal icing is still as perfect as the day I made them. Just protect them from moisture and dust.
