How long does Royal icing last?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I made too much RI. I don't want to throw it away so I put it in a ziplock bag. My question is: How long will it be good for? Do I store it in the fridge?
Thanks in advance for your help! thumbs_up.gif

If you work with your hands you're a laborer. If you work with your hands and your mind you're a craftsman. If you work with your hands, your mind and your heart, you're an artist

I freeze my RI and it lasts a long time. When you take it out of the freezer, mix it when it defrosts before using. (it never really gets rock hard in freezer)

When i make a big batch of Antonia'a, i keep it nice and stiff and transfer what i need to another bowl to thin out. I then refrigerate the rest, which lasts quite a bit of time (longest for me was a month when i used it; don't know how long it would last after that). The stiff RI doesn't tend to separate as does the thinned out one, so i generally don't need to re-beat; just scoop out what i need, thin it out, and use.

my WMI told me 3 years if properly stored. I use the basic RI recipe from wilton.
For the love of all that is sugar, flour, and eggs!

I keep mine in a air-tight container (like tupperware) at room temperature and away for heat and sunlight. I store it that way for up to 10 days. After that, I only use it for practice, not consumption.
