Hi, I was asked to make decorated gingerbread cookies for someone and they want them earlier then expected, my question is...Is there a way of drying the royal icing quicker? If made in the morning can they be ok for the same evening? Thanks

I would think they'd be fine, but I'm no expert. Also, I read on here that some people use one of those goose-neck desk lamps so that they can focus the light directly on the cookies to help them dry faster. HTH!

I dry mine for 12-24 hours before stacking and bagging. Here is another thread that has some ideas and some links to info about drying RI faster.

That's annoying! Don't people realize that these things are made fresh to order and that we don't pull them out of the freezer as needed?
