Okay, what happened?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi, all. I made some royal icing before I went to work today. Did everything right and left it in an airtight container. It was pretty stiff at the time. But when I just got home and looked in on it, it seemed to have softened a bit. I still get some peaks out of it. But not like before. I was hoping to sit up tonight and work on some roses and drop flowers. Does anybody have any ideas? Do you think that it will go back to it's form after rewhipping? Help!! icon_cry.gif

If you rewhip it, it should be okay.

No problem! No crying aloud, only when there's no more cake. icon_biggrin.gif

The girls in my cake classes who worked all day had to do that every week! They always made their icing the night before, and brought their mixers to class to rewhip it. I'm sure yours will be fine!

Thanks, Melissa! I am hoping that it works out. I am going to wait for the kiddies to fall asleep and get cracking. I love to do things in advance. That way I am in no rush when 2 or 3 cakes are due the same week. Wish me luck!! icon_lol.gif

Hey Mchelle and TC. I did rewhip this morning and everything turned out fine. Well, except that I am still struggling with my roses. My hubby said that they looked fine. And I mentioned to him about how we always say on this site to not mention our boo-boos and no one will notice. He agreed with that. And you know when I looked at them later they weren't so bad. I swear that I am my own worst critic when it comes to this stuff. But you alls advice really helped me out. I was ready to ditch the whole amount I had mixed up. It is always great to have friends who can understand. Thanks again! Happy Baking!!

It is used to thicken icing- tcturtleshell uses it alot in her royal icing with great success.

I have a question m0use. using cornstarch for smoothing down frosting...doesnt it take taste away? Thats what I worry about the taste of cornstarch.
post #15 of 16
It doesn't take the taste away. Cornstarch has no taste or color, once mixed in.

Tonyascakes, great I'm glad it worked. Take your time on the roses, you'll get them perfect (or as perfect as you can stand). I never get them perfect, but I can live with that for now! GOOD LUCK, and keep the faith, you'll get it!
