Tried to search this topic and can't find anything - but search only works so so.
Anyway, I plan to do some sugar cookies and want to stencil on the fondant with royal icing. I know I'm not going to need a lot of royal icing so am going to try to make the smallest batch I can - but I still expect to have leftovers. What is the best way to store leftover royal icing and how long will it keep? Can I freeze it, like I freeze my buttercream?
I've never frozen RI but i've refrigerated it for at least a week and it was fine. It just needs to be mixed well before using cuz it separates.
FYI, i've found that fresh RI works much better and flows easier than when i use leftovers.
I've never frozen RI
You can freeze it. It never really freezes hard, so you can massage it back to life in its little ziploc bag and it's pretty much good to go.
I freeze my RI and have never had a problem
