How long does royal icing take to dry?

If your royal icing is too thin, just keep beating it to introduce more air OR you can add more confectioners' sugar.

I usually set my cookies out (in a single, flat layer, on parchment-lined baking sheets) overnight to dry.

Does royal icing harden in the fridge?

How do you harden runny icing?

If there is one ingredient that is perfect for thickening icing, it's flour. All you have to do is add 1 or 2 teaspoons of flour to your runny icing and then stir the mixture over low heat. This method only works when making warm icing, as flour can leave an unpleasant taste if not fully dissolved.

Can you overmix royal icing?

Overmixing the icing If you overmix or mix the icing on a high setting, you'll whip too much air into the mix, leaving you with a frosting that looks more like a crunchy sponge than a smooth finish.

How do you thicken icing without icing sugar?

If your concern is to avoid adding sugar, as the mixture is already sweet, you can try adding thickening agents from your kitchen. Use cornstarch, gelatin, cream cheese, cocoa powder, heavy cream, or butter to thicken the mixture.

How do you fix royal icing?

You've added too much water to the royal icing. The best way to fix this is to start adding a little extra powdered sugar. If you need a large amount, also add some extra egg white to keep the ratio egg whites:powdered sugar the same. Just add a little extra water.
