I have to make royal icing and colour flow icing for a cake class tomorrow night. If I make it tonight, how do I store it? In tupperware? Refrigerated?
Any warnings on potential issues I may have making the colour flow? Does everything have to be de-greased for colour flow, the same as with the royal???
Any help is appreciated!!! Thanks in advance.
You can keep RI on the counter in an airtight container for a long time. I'm not sure about color flow, though. I've only made it once, and that was a while back. I don't remember having any particular issues with it...
You can make it tonight, store it in tupperware and leave it on the counter. No need to put in fridge.
Yes, you should try to avoid grease when making your colorflow also.
The above works fine, but I prefer to store RI in glass containers, and I never put a damp towel on top (many people do this). After working so hard on making the perfect consistency RI I don't want to mess with the moisture content (learned this the hard way!).
Thank you both so much!
ive made color flow twice and stored it in a glass jar. Grease breaks down color flow just like grease breaks down royal icing (according to my Wilton instructor) so i wouldnt recommend storing it in tupperware.
hope this helps some.
