Is it possible to freeze royal icing?
Or how long does it keep in the fridge?

Hope someone can help.

Royal icing can be stored in a grease free container... no plastic . Plastic will make the royal icing break down. store it an an airtight glass container for 2weeks.

I've kept RI for several weeks in the fridge. I put it in a canning jar, place plastic wrap on the RI to prevent crusting on the surface. Then put the rubber seal on and screw the top on well. HTH

I asked this question couple of weeks ago in the cookie forum and was told that - yes - you can freeze royal icing. After it thaws you may need to rewhip it.

I keep RI in the fridge, in Tupperware (so, yes, you CAN keep RI in plastic...). I always re-beat.
