There are actually tons of things you can do with it, but this is what I happened to be doing today, so this is what you get =)
When I first began making flower cookies, I flooded the cookie, waited eight hours until it was dry, and then added the centers. Then one day, I got wise. I came up with a time saving method that is also a good way to use leftover icing.
*I should have said this before, but the little decorations last FOREVER…well not really forever, but there’s no expiration date. You will get weirded out and end up throwing them away before they actually go bad.
They do however, fade. Keep them in a cool, dark, non-humid place because moisture and light are the enemy of royal icing decorations.
And I have heard some say NEVER to store them in airtight containers, and some say that they MUST be in a container…I don’t really know enough to say honestly. I have done it both ways. The ribbon roses have been out since Valentine’s day. But I also live in the desert. SOOOOOO, I’d say if you live in a dry climate, no worries. If you live in Seattle or something, leave ’em out and let me know, because it hasn’t rained here in four months, and I am not sure it’s going to =(
