I have just finished using some royal icing, and have quite a bit left over. I hate waste, so was wondering if it is OK to freeze it. Couldn't find the answer on google, so am hoping someone here can tell me. If so, anything I need to know about defrosting it etc?

I froze Antonia74 royal icing the other day and then discovered I needed it.I just popped in the microwave on defrost for a minute or so and it was fine.

I froze some recently specifically because I knew I would need the colors again and needed them to match what I had already made. When I thawed it, I did need to re-whip it a little. The good news is that, texturally, it was fine; the bad news is that the colors ended up altered and I had to tweak and they ended up almost but not quite a perfect match icon_sad.gif.

Good to kmow. I always make more than I need and hate to waste it. Does it separate like when left out for a while/
