Since Toba's glace has milk in it, does it need to be refrigerated?

No it does not have to be refrigerated.

Thanks! Didn't think so but the milk in things always makes me nervous.

When i make it, i refrigerate it because i find it can last longer and taste great.

I'm refrigerating the bowls I have not used yet, but do you refrigerate the cookies with it on?

If the cookies are to be stored for long term, i'll freeze them.

When the cookies are drying, i leave them at room temp because if you refrigerate them, they will crack and get splotchy.

This icing doesn't like to get cold! As luv2bake6 said, they can get splotchy when cold. Adding brite white food color to the icing helps, though. And letting them completely dry helps, too. I've had good luck when refrigerating them after about 36 hours of dry time. They even handled being in the freezer!

Thank you both for your words of advice. This is the first time I'm using Toba's glace and I read the tips from CC but nothing is like actually doing something to learn. I have my bowls of icing in the refrigerator (I have three little kids so I'm constantly being interrupted so it takes a long time to decorate the cookies). As I'm decorating the cookies, I'm leaving them sit out. I just finished the detail work today so plan to let them sit out until tomorrow and then freeze them. Is that right?

On a few cookies I've noticed spotches but I didn't use Bright White food color since I didn't have any. You can see them in my photos (they are the only ones since all my other photos disappeared today).

Should I leave out the glace before it gets on the cookie? That's the only time I refrigerated it.

I would recommend letting them sit a couple days if you're going to try to freeze them. Without the brite white, you'll be taking a chance on the icing getting cloudy and spotty.
