Hi, I live in a very very dry country, but miraculously, we have high humidity for a few days now!! I baked and decorated NFSC, but unfortunately, they became soft to the touch, and they are breaking and "bending"!! What do all of you who live in a humid country do??

Thank You.

Pray that they hold up untill the cust. has eaten them. No joke want to see how humid it is here? I'm attaching a pic of my halloween muffins with pumpkin topper, ..... You have to know that the pumpkins were made of fondant with CMC added AND were completely hardened through on Halloween. I took this picture yesterday (3 days later)

I live in Georgia so it's pretty humid here...I have to constantly put my stuff in the refrigerator constantly to help it on really bad days here!

Ursula40: This is a disaster, I hope these muffins were NOT for a customer!!
I heard that putting a piece of charcoal in the same box with the cookies, will absorb the humidity, has anyone tried this??

No these were left overs from my own Halloween party, put them into a tupperware after the party and 2 days later, this is what they looked like.
