WHY WHY is Royal Icing Drying all Crackled

post #1 of 4

This doesn't happen everytime, but a few times, the royal icing will take forever to dry on my cookies and then when it does dry it looks all crackled. HELP!! Could it be humidity or something I am doing wrong!!!

Are you thinning it like a glaze? Sounds like maybe you thinned with water. Try thinning with egg white instead and don't get it too wet.
It's not how good you are, but how well you can fix your mistakes.

You know I can't remember, but I probably did thin with water. I used meringue powder to make the icing, so I should use reg egg whites to thin?

I think that might help. Using a fan to dry them quicker might also help. Mostly I think you got it too thin.
