Royal Icing Not Setting

Homemade for Heroes
I'm following a fast-setting royal icing (RI) recipe. First time was great! Last three were disasters. It's shiny and opaque, so I thought I didn't clean well enough. Today, the fourth attempt, it won't mix past a four-second consistency. I've followed the recipe to a tee. Setting timers and everything. It's heavy to stir, not like you'd expect a four-second constency to be. I have researched here and followed cleaning instructions. Have carefully washed all utensils, and today used a RI...Read More...

Hi. I'm visiting my mom, and she asked that I make some cookies for her benifit auction tonight and tomorrow night. These are epic fails. I'm in Mexico working with gas appliances, which I'm not used to. Cookies browned a lot more than I like. She's never heard of a silpat. So we used parchment paper on aluminum sheets. Oven temperature is correct. Royal icing looked great. Colored well. 15-second consistency seemed very thick. I went with 8-second. Still had separation between colors. We...Read More...

Freezing/Storing Large Volume

Homemade for Heroes
Hi all, I bake for the military in my spare time. I have a friend who helps and we crank out the cookies. Right now we are getting 2500 Easter cookies ready for an AF (air force) base in TX. My question is: is it ok to freeze after baking and again after decorating? Does this affect how long the cookies will be fresh? I ship flat rate, and it's usually 3 days, but I'd like to ship overseas and that can take 8-21 days. Doing large volume as we do, it kills us to do 4 days of 8-12 hour...Read More...
