I left it on the counter and ran out to take the kids to their activities. When I got home 2 1/2 hrs later and asked if he moved it, he said he was cleaning up for me and put all my icing in the fridge!!!! The RI was in piping bags, in a ziploc. Would the 2 hours or so in the fridge ruin it completely? I was planning on using it for small accents: mostly balls & garland on a ice cream cone Christmas Tree.
Oh it's prolly fine. Test it a little.
I finally got my husband to help cleaning up. He tossed some important icing that was colored to match something else in progress. There's no way I could complain or I'd loose my new dishwasher. Agh!!! The devil is in the details (and the dishroom as the case was)
Thanks. I thought it might be okay, but I'd hate to try it and ruin my trees. At least he helps , can't get too mad at that, and certainly don't want to fire the free cleaning crew. There was a HUGE mess I left behind in the kitchen which he cleaned for me, probably would have taken longer to clean than to whip up a new batch of RI. Now we've agreed, if it's cake related and edible he'll keep it where I left it (but still clean underneath .
I've left my royal icing in the frig for days and it was fine. Sometimes it separates a bit, but if I stir it, it goes right back to normal.
I was taught to cover my royal with a piece of plastic wrap pressed down so it was touching the icing, put my lid on container and put it in the fridge. Just always give it a good beat before use and its always been fine!
keeps for a while too
