I have made a batch of royal icing and have a lot left over. Can someone please tell me how to store it and keep it from getting hard so I can use it at another time....and if it can be stored, for how long? I don't want to waste it by throwing it away. Please help!!!!!
Hi, you can store your royal icing in an airtight container in the fridge. Cover it with plastic wrap and then put the lid on the container for extra sealing. It keeps for quite a while. I have never tried freezing it and am not sure whether you can, perhaps one of the other CC'ers will know.
I keep my no longer than about 3 weeks.
Hope this helps,
Thanks Kim, you sure did help.
And don't store it in any plastic container that has had a grease-based product in it before. Even though you've washed it, the grease soaks into the plastic. Once even a tiny bit of grease soaks into the RI, it's uselss as RI. (Glass bowl with plastic lid okay if you put some cellophane on it before you secure the lid on.)
Great tip CutiePieCakes-Ontario...Thanks!
I freeze leftovers in ziplocks. Works fine.
wow, that's great to know you can freeze RI! I didn't know that. I usually have lots left over. Do you have to mix it a while after it thaws?
