I have been trying new icings for the last couple weeks to find which I like best, I loved the RBC last week but no matter what I did I could not get it on my cookie properly, bummer. Today I tried toba's glace, so far I am loving it! quick and easy to make, perfect consistency right away and looks awesome so far so I think the glace is going to be my icing winner, but I am curious if it can be frozen? I liked the RI since I could make my cookies ahead of time and freeze, if I can freeze toba's with no problems I will be one happy baker!!
that's a good question!
i love glace but have never tried it (i never have any left, lol, a drawback to having a 5 year old).
i will watch your post!
Freeze cookies separated between wax paper in an airtight container. Be sure to use the white gel in your icing to avoid splotching.
I froze mine and the frosting got all wierd in a few days. I don't know if it's because I didn't add white to it like HoneyDukes said, but it was like there were snowflake patterns all on the surface of the cookie, but in the frosting. I did them layered in parchment in an airtight container.
I have not had good results when freezing cookies with the glace. Like HeidiCrumbs experienced, the icing took on a crackled, cloudy appearance. Granted, I haven't been brave enough to see if adding the white to the icing eliminates this problem. I know that it helped keep iced cookies nice in the refrigerator (even that made the icing funny), but I don't know if it would help with freezing them. I would say do a test and see what happens.
Thanks everyone. I have been adding white to the glace when I make it so I am hoping, like honeydukes says, that this works for me, I think I will make a few this week as a test to make sure
