i never used it before, i got some royal mix awhile back from ck ...ok...do i need to do some to the bowl and beaters to make sure no grease is on it?...they have been thru the dishwasher....do i need to rinse them with vinegar or something?
i hope i can do it well...it would be great to have some stuff made ahead of time.
as long as you ran it through the dishwasher it should be fine. Just make sure not to use any plastic bowls to store it in unless they are brand new. Good luck, I really love royal icing
When making anything with egg whites, meringue, IMNC, or RI, I always wipe down the bowl and beaters with a paper towel dampened with white vinegar just for that extra insurance.
Yup......what they ^^^^^^ said
Along the same line...can RI be frozen? I always end up throwing part of it out because I don't usually need a lot.
Nah, don't freeze your RI...refrigerate it.
I keep mine for months on end in the fridge in a well-sealed Pyrex (glass) storage bowl.
I keep it on hand because that's what I use for assembling bows and only need a few tablespoons at a time.
Months??? You use meringue powder? And it doesn't spoil?
Yes, I use meringue powder, and no, it doesn't spoil.
It only has three ingredients: sugar, water, and pasteurized egg whites. There's really nothing in it that would spoil, especially under refrigeration.
