Will it mess up my royal icing flowers if I store them in the refrigerator for 2 weeks?
I store RI decorations in an air tight container (like Glad or Ziploc) at room temp. I have some that have lasted in pristine condition for up to 4 months (I would never use them but they are in excellent condition if I wanted to)
My wilton instructor said they last for years .
She told us the best way to store them is in clean pizza boxes and stack them somewhere. I have mine in my dining room hutch. I took my first class in 2005 and I still have some of those ones. Probably because I have child locks on the doors and my kids haven't figured out how to open them!
I keep mine in an airtight container in a cabinet and they do last years. I just used some that were @ 3 years old and they were just fine and fresh as the day I made them, I tasted one! If I could upload my pics you could see them but there is some sort of problem and I don't have any patience left to keep on trying... I do not think I would put them in the refrigerator since I would think it's too humid and they may soften? Not sure, just my gut feel.
Thanks. I didn't think they were suppose to go in the fridge, but wasn't sure. I usually don't make flowers so far in advance, but since I have 6 week old baby, I figured I would get a head start.
Well you can knock yourself out making them in advance they will be just fine when you need them, just keep them in a cool and dry place.
