Has anyone frozen sugar cookies that were decorated with royal icing ?

I'd like to make some and use the marbled effect with gel coloring .
Also some with the lace .
I have large rubbermaid containers that I can use to freeze them in. I want to make these for my niece's wedding shower . I live 200 miles away . I will be there the month before and I'd give them to my sister to freeze.

Would moisture ruin the decorating?

I plan to do a trial run and try it . The shower is the end of Sept.

You can freeze them. I lay wax or parchment paper in between layers of cookies or I pre package them in their cello bags then into airtight container. To defrost I keep them in container until they become room temp, to avoid any moisture problems.

Good Luck

Thanks for your response . I know you can freeze cookies.I Just didnt want to spend a lot of time decorating and have moisture ruin them from freezing .
Nadia of My little Bakery has inspired me . She is truly an artist . Cant wait to try the lace affect .

I went to check her site. That is amazing lace work. Be sure to post pictures of your version. I suppose you better freeze carefully, some of it looks pretty fragile.

I've done it before without any issues. I put parchment paper in between the layers of cookies. I put the cookie in gallon ziploc bags that I then put inside tupperware containers. When it's time to defrost, I set the whole thing out on the counter & don't touch it until I'm sure it's at room temp. Hope this helps!
