I did cookies yesterday and used the color flow on them last night. They are still not dry to package. I tried putting them in the freezer and nothing.

Any suggestions on getting it to thoroughly dry? or something else I could try?

they were made to look like the heart candies, so I was trying to do 4 different colors, so I need something I can do with 4 different colors and will work on cold cookies. thanks

Things won't dry in the freezer or refrigerator. A slightly warm oven (turn it to the lowest temperature setting for a minute and then turn it off) or under a desk lamp is a better option.

thanks, I will try that now. How long do you suggest leaving them in for?

You're welcome; it depends on the humidity where you are...sometimes things set up quickly and other times, they take forevvvver icon_lol.gif

figures lol, I need these to be ready to go to the school by 2pm lol. I left them in about 5-10 minutes or so and just took them out. I am in NJ, we have a ton of snow, not sure what the humidity in the house is. Though we have forced hot air heat, so it sucks out the humidity lol. I hope I can start to package them within half hour. thanks for the info though

i you have a desk lamp you can put it over the cookies. it will help to dry it. the humidity in your area will keep the icing from drying totally too. the freezer will also keep it from drying.

Did you leave them sitting out over night to dry or did you cover them up with something that would keep air from them?
