I need help because my royal icing will not whip up!! I have made 4 batches now and still get the same results. I’ve washed my mixing bowl and all the other accessories to remove any possible grease, whipped my meringue powder with water to get foam (my first step), changed to a new package of meringue powder (expires 9/2019), any other different steps but still getting the same results.
This is my first time to receive failed results (just a batch of glob). And yes it’s humid here but no different than usual.
any comments or suggestions on helping out?
I don't know, I don't do that as a step. I add the powdered sugar first and then the meringue powder, water, any flavorings, etc, then whip it up all together. Never had any problems.
Could it be you are impaient - not whipping it enough? It's been years since I've made royal but it seems to me to take a long time. I've even made fondant using my whipped royal w/o problems.
#kakeladi I thought the same thing and a couple of the batches I whipped at least 10 minutes and still it was just a big glob.
