I'm sure a lot of you already know this, but I didn't...colored royal icing can be frozen then used without any problem! I made up some black Antonia's royal icing and had a bunch left over. I couldn't bear to throw it away, so I threw it in the freezer. A month later and it handled like I had just made it. I have read that white royal freezes well, but nothing about colored. Now I know.
I actually didn't know you could freeze RI. That is great to know. There are times when I need just a little and even when I make the tiniest batch I can I still have waste. I think next time I'll try separating leftover RI into little snack sized bags for the freezer and see how that works.
Thanks for the tip!
Have you ever froze the glace icing? I had some white leftover this week-end and I put it into the freezer. I also hate to throw the leftover away and thought that if it comes out okay I come out ahead and if not I would have thrown it out anyway.
I've frozen decorated cookies with RI but not the RI itself. I'm assuming that would be true with glace as well. Thanks for letting us know!
Yeah, I'd love to know if glace freezes well.
I just read a post by Gemini about freezing cookies decorated with glace... here's the link.
edited to add: sorry - I just re-read the thread and realized you were saying glace alone, not on cookies. I guess I responded too soon!
