I am thinking of donating some decorated sugar cookies to a festival our church is having in a few weeks. It'll probably be 90 degrees that day... will Royal Icing hold up to that heat?

Once it is dry, it should hold up fine.

Yep, royal is not heat sensitive.

I live in PR and here is always 90-95 degrees and never have any problems with my cookies.

RI is perfect for heat. Once dry- rock hard (which is why some don't like it). In humidity though, I once had an issue because I stacked them, and they "stuck" together a bit (after a day- in home only). So as long as they are wrapped, or separated (if they stay out long) you will be fine.

It's not the heat you have to worry about. It's the humidity. When I make royal icing pieces, I put them in the oven to speed up the drying process.
