 I made my Royal iced cookies as always,however this time they all lifted off 

as a royal ice tranfers when dried.  Any idea why?

Same cookie dough, and icing mix.

I do not understand what lifted.  Did the actual icing lift or a decoration you added to it.  Can you explain the problem better?

I made hockey skates , as normally I would. The next day I was going to put them into cello

bags, every single cookie "Royal icing " just slid of the cookie. It was dry, just like a Royal icing transfer . I had to re glue them on with icing. I been decorating for years never had a 

problem like this. Judith

I haven't worked that much w/royal.  All can think of is that the royal was dry - maybe over beaten so it didn't stick enough  as 'glue' to adhere the skates .  Maybe someone who does more work w/royal will offer a different idea.
