What's the best way to store RI? the only advice I can find is to store it in an air tight container with a damp paper towel over it...but isn't that while in use? How do I store it for later use...like tomorrow or next week?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! BTW, mine's made with meriangue powder, water, and 10X sugar.
Lay a piece of plastic wrap over the top and put a lid on it (air tight container). It can be stored on the counter top.
I put it in a glass bowl that has an airtight lid. I put a piece of damp paper towel over the bowl under the lid. I keep it in the fridge (I know it's not really neccessary, I just think it holds up better in there). Always rewhip before using again!
Thanks! that exactly what I wanted to know. How long do you usually keep it? will it last a week without freezing it?
I'm not sure. I've always managed to use it up w/in 3 days.
i just put it in a tupperware and lid and ive had it there for 2 wks now and its still good.
I just had some that I had leftover on my counter for 2 months. I made a decal out of it and it was just fine, however if you are making items like flowers I would say that it should be used sooner. I have saved it for a month with the Press n Seal over the top of the plastic container and then a nice tight lid over all that. I would rewhip as others have stated to use for flowers.
Thanks so much for all your helpful comments!! You have also given me the idea to use my left overs for some practice flowers instead of storing it as is. practice makes perfect, right? Thanks again!!
