NO air bubbles!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, I'm been PM'd this question a lot lately, so here is the secret....


Make your royal icing using the paddle on the lowest speed. When the 10 minutes are up, thin it to just thicker than the consistency you actually need (you'll understand why in a minute), tint it to whatever colour you need and then LEAVE IT COVERED WITH A DAMP CLOTH ON THE COUNTER FOR A FEW HOURS OR EVEN BETTER, OVERNIGHT. (To prevent the towel from drying out, slip a grocery bag over the entire towel and bowl together.)

In the morning, or after a few hours, the icing bubbles will have risen to the top and popped themselves. The moisture from the towel will have thinned the icing just a little bit more, so if necessary, add a few tablespoons of icing sugar with your spatula and mix slowly again for a few strokes.

Voila!! icon_lol.gif Smooth as a baby's bum and ready to pipe. icon_smile.gif

Thanks Helen!! I just made your icing for the first time last week with no fail cookies. Didn't have air bubbles, but now i know what to do if future batches do give me air bubbles. Thanks again
