How long in advance could you decorate sugar cookies with royal icing?

I will be decorating 40 large butterfly cookies for my sister's baby shower; however, I do not have much space to dry them all at once. It would be nice to be able to do them slowly in advance. I will also be making the cake/cupcakes for the shower.

Any help would be welcome.

I don't like doing them more than a day, two at most. I think cookies get stale fast. I have stacking racks that I use while they are drying. You can take the cooling racks you have and use something for a spacer to stack them. I have used the rings from canning jars onw the cornners and then stacked them. HTH

I just use whatever space I can find. All of my counter space, coffee table, computer desk, where ever I can fit them all lol. I also dont like to do them more than 2 days in advance so they wont get stale tasting.

Thanks jlynnw, inamommy1205

It looks like I might have the house to myself if so then I will be able to do this without interruptions and no extra hands to mess it up except for me of course. lol

I will post pictures when done. The shower is for the end of June.
