I made sugar cookies with Antonia74's RI. I made sure the icing was completely dry, then I packaged them in plastic goodie bags. When I was tying the tag on the ribbon, I noticed the icing was soft and looked wet. Would the bag make the cookies sweat> It there a way to prevent this?

That just happened to me last week except I had fondant on my cookies. They had been sitting on the table all night and the windows were open. The moist night air came in and by morning the fondant felt tacky. After I bagged them, I noticed several had condensation inside. All I could figure was the moisture of the night air.

Well it was VERY hot and humid outside. Even though my air conditioner was pretty low, I think the humidity may have caused it.
