I usually flood the cookies the night before or early morning then come back later and finish the design, it is wonderful, happy icing, C.
If you are flooding and waiting all night for the cookies to dry then finishing the design in the morning. How long is the total drying time for them to be completely stackable?
This is one of the reasons I mentioned that it's not recommended to flood this icing. It takes way longer to be completely dry and stackable when it's flooded.
I use my icing without flooding and I can do my designs right away and leave them overnight so I am 100% they are fully dry and stackable. Then all I have to do in the morning is package them. I will time time it the next time so I know exactly how long it takes to dry.
