How to Store Royal Icing Transfers
I am so glad you are here with me today. I have been trying to share how I store my royal icing transfers with you for months now. I have honestly started typing it a million times but, never completed it. I think I know why.
I store most of my royall icing transfers in Ball jars. I separate them by shape and size. Every time I started taking pictures of them, they didn’t look right. Then, it hit me. They needed some color. They looked kinda plain with gray lids. Then, I saw these cute little lids from Raising up Rubies thanks to picture on Pinterest I knew exactly how I was going to get my jars ready for their photo shoot.

I love the way they turned out! If you want to know how to make the lids. click here. I had labels on the lids before I saw her post but I can see what is in the jars now so much easier.
Now that we have cute little containers let’s talk about how to separate them. I may not be much help because seriously, all the jars you see in the first picture is not even half of my transfers. I am not kidding. Seriously, not joking here.
Anyway, most transfer can be stored in jars without any problems. I use the eye transfers the most and they are separated by small medium and large. I store them at the front of the cabinet for easy access.
Do you remember these popsicle transfers? Here they are stored in a jar upside down. They work better upside down because the stick won’t break if there isn’t any press on them.
Here is a jar full of snowman noses. As you can see they are several sizes in the same jar. I don’t use them that much so I consider this jar seasonal and didn’t want three different jars to keep them in.
I am kinda sad looking at this jar. It is almost empty! I need more eyes. I guess we know what I will make tomorrow.
Not all royal icing transfers should be stored in jars. I guess they can but, if I don’t want to take a chance non then breaking I have a different way of storing them. If a transfer has delicate pieces I prefer to leave them on the wax paper they were piped on.
I am not sure if this is a proper way to store my transfers but, it works for me. If you don’t care for this method it is alright. Just store your any way that makes you happy.
- To make these you will need a three ring binder, Ziploc bags, sheetprotectors and dividers.
- Once your royal icing transfers are completely dry, cut or fold the wax paper so it will fit in a Ziplock bag.
- Place it in the bag and press out the air and seal the bag.
- Slide the bag into the sheet protectors.
- Use the transfers when you need them.
It is that simple! I store the three ring binder with my cook books being careful not to crush them.
Well, there you have it. That is how to store royal icing transfers. How do you store yours? I would love to hear about it. Leave me a comment and let me know.
