I am a cookie baker and just baked a frosted a few dozen on the first really hot/humid day of the year. It was a disaster. The frosting didn't set (RI) and the cookies are so fragile the edges crumble when you pick them up. It wasn't air conditioned where I was working today but I will probably need to get an AC unit for the bakery when I open.

What do you all do? Just make sure your shop is cool enough and recommend the customers keep the product refrigerated?

I don't want to sell cookies that are falling apart! HELP!

A/C is a must where I live! I do a LOT of gum paste work and I have a dehumidifer setup in my work area. Makes a HUGe difference! (and only cost a couple of hundred bucks so was well worth it!)

I have these big bright stickers that say REFRIGERATE!! that I put on the boxes that need to be refrigerated for the customer. But I have never had to refrigerate cookies before..
