Whether using glaze or royal....I am decorating some cookies today to give to my BFF tomorrow and I know they won't be dry in time. Grrrr. Can they be put in a warm oven? or would that ruin the cookie?

i think it would dry the cookie out.. i personally ...would put them in front of a small fan... not drying . directly on them.. but across them.. i use a small fan all the time on something.. ha! i always need things to be done .. yesterday...ha!

RI does dry faster than glace; i'd just use fondant for last minute cookies that won't have enough time to dry.

it depends on what your doing, is there alot of details?

I put mine under my stove light (you know which one I mean right?) with a fan oscillating about 3 ft away.

I have hear other people put them in the oven with JUST THE LIGHT ON!! no heat icon_smile.gif

I'm using cookie crazie's glace type icing and it dries pretty fast. I did another batch of them last night and I think they will be fine to stack by tomorrow when I put the tray together. Thanks!!!

I leave my cookies to sit on the dining room table with the ceiling fan running on medium, usually overnight, but they're dry to the touch in about 4 hours.
