What is your way to store unused RI?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
What I was doing over two years is: the unused RI after decorating cookies, I squeeze them into empty Wilton icing tubes. I had each color in that tube, and next time I just put a tip to the tube and go... now these tubes are tearing of so much use. So I started store the RI in decorating bags with the tips and tip cover, but I am running low of my tips in my decorating box, because they are with the icing. I was wondering, if there is another way to do it. What is your way??? I also was thinking of using candy bottles, but you can't put tip on it and decorate well.....

I've never frozen it, didn't know we could, yeah!! I keep mine in glass Pyrex dishes with plastic covers. I'm always worried that if it's in plastic too long it will taste funny, like plasticky.

I always store mine in tupperwear containers...

Just a side note...i've purchased those plastic bottles in which you can put tips on and really hate them. I feel they were a waste of money. Unless the btle is completely full you have to squeeze like crazy to get enough pressure to push the icing out. I've only used them once and they are sitting in my cabinet collecting dust. I thought they looked like a great idea, but they get a thumbs down from me.

I store mine like Heidi Crumbs. I use glass bowls.

On a side note, I love the plastic bottles for doing my decorating. They're a bit of a pain to fill but they are all I use.

Yes! I read it here (of course!) I love it! You can take a little bag of RI out of the freezer, massage it to life - it doesn't really freeze solid - and you're good to go. I now freeze any tiny leftovers.

If I am going to be using the royal icing in the next few days, I leave it in the piping bag. I remove the tip and put a piece of plastic wrap over the top and replace the coupler ring. If I am not going to be using it again for a week or so, I put the icing in the small ziplock disposable containers and cover with press n seal before putting the lid on. I find that if the royal icing sits for more than a day or two, it seperates and needs to be stirred.

I think the squeeze bottles work great for Glace' icing -- they didn't work so well when I tried them with Royal, but I probably had the RI too thick. I think I like the smaller bottles the best. If you have the big ones and are using them with smaller amounts of Glace' in them, just keep them on their side in between picking them up again -- not so far for the icing to move back to the tip.

wow! I didn't think of freezing RI. Thanks for that tip. Hey, can you freeze the RI after you've already colored it??
post #14 of 21
Yes you can freeze colored RI. Let it come to room temp, then stir well.
