I have had my first batch of royal icing in the fridge for a week now. Can I just take it out to warm and use it or do I have to do something special to "revive" it.

Thanks so much!

You've got it in an airtight container, right? Otherwise, I'd toss it.

Let it come to room temp and then rewhip it. It should be fine.

I did have it in a tupperware container. I thought that might be the process, but wanted to check anyway.

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

I thought you weren't supposed to refrigerate royal icing because the condensation will make it break down? I use meringue powder and store in an airtight container (with a piece of plasti wrap under the lid for good measure) on the counter. It will keep for about two weeks.

And, yes. Rewhip it!
