Royal Icing

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, has anyone ever used KC royal icing from the bag? I used entired bag cause I only needed just a little to do writting and a few roses. Well after mixing every thing according to directions and covered in seal container until ready to use, well it got a little stiffed and use a spoon to mix again and still was too stiff to come out of icing bag through tip. So I add a tablespoon of water to pastry bag and mix again which I had already added the color to the royal icing prior to adding the tablespoon of water; the icing mixture became runny icon_cry.gificon_redface.gif don't know what might have cause this, does any one know and what tip(s) can you offer that might help me in the future. I had to through out the entire icing and start over with another type of icing and it work, but not for my roses, cause had to travel 3-5 hours in car and just knew that the roses would not make it and I did not have gumpaste unfortunately. icon_cry.gificon_redface.gif Just have to remember to have back up supplies just in case some things goes wrong, I can substitute or do a different recipe. Thanks in advance = (TIA).

I'm sorry you had such trouble.... My only advice is that royal icing has only 3 ingredients. I think you should make it from scratch as it really is so easy....then you can easily control the consistency of it. Better luck next time!

You need to thin royal icing very slowly. One drop of water makes a big difference. I use a spray bottle to thin my royal icing. Once I have made stiff consistancy icing. I mist my icing then mix. And I continue doing this until the consistancy is what I need to to be.
