Well, I've been making the same sugar cookies, decorated with royal icing (make with meringe powder) for some time. Yesterday, I made a batch and the icing is refusing to harden! I made the "flow" icing as I always have, but this time, when I put it on my cookies, it "bubbled" a bit, and now, an entire day later, remains sticky. We have had rain here for two days, so I suspect the humidity may be the culprit, although I cranked the air in the kitchen. The only other thing I did differently this time is the icing colors were very bight and intense, so I used a good bit more gel colors (CK colors..) than before. Could that be part of the problem? Any ideas on how to prevent this in the future?
