Not sure what to do with that leftover royal icing after decorating your cookies? Cookie expert Maddie Gartmann shows you just how easy it is to store your royal icing so nothing goes to waste!
Use the helpful “2-2-2” rule for storing royal icing:
– Store for 2 days at room temperature
– Store for 2 weeks in the refrigerator
– Store for 2 months in the freezer
If storing your royal icing right out of the mixing bowl, Maddie recommends transferring the icing into a glass container for storage. However, you can also store your royal icing right in the piping bags! Simply tape the tip of each bag closed to prevent your icing from leaking or drying while being stored. For long-term storage, piping bags can be frozen in a freezer bag. When it’s time to use icing that’s been stored in the freezer, simply take them out and allow them to defrost at room temperature.
