Reply to "Solved (and Unsolved) Royal Icing Issues?"

Hi Wildflower!  I don't wipe my bowls/utensils with vinegar.  It didn't look like Haniela (in her vids when she mentions vinegar) washed/rinsed after wiping with vinegar.  She only wiped the mixer bowl with vinegar. 

Yes, plastic is porous but I have not incurred my icing cracking...  (I get craters now and then - lol.)  I use Wilton. 

Maybe the RI ratios are off and that caused cracking.  As for coloring - it will darken as it sits/dries and can continue to darken.  All products don't contain the same ingredients.  (Hope I said that right.  And some colors, to me, seem to make the icing thicken.  I seem to have that problem with Duff's.  Maybe I'm wrong...  But, the combination of colored products (gel/liquid/concentrated (Wilton garden set) in an unbalanced icing ratio may factor into cracking.
