Hi! I put some red royal icing (Wilton recipe, Americolor coloring) on some cookies last night and it looked great. However, when I woke up this morning it had dried really strangely and was kind of sticky. It is humid here in Ohio right now, but I have the central air on and we have a humidifier on our furnace. This didn't happen with any of the other colors (white, orange, pink, yellow). I posted a picture, hope it came through. I've never seen this happen before... any ideas? Thanks!

I just had this exact same problem happen to my cookies! Except it was on both the red and blue coloring, and then even the white started doing it! My icing never fully dried either, it was Antonias icing recipe. I just came on here to locate Toba Garrett's icing, but can't find that recipe anywhere.
