Can I freeze cookies with royal icing?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have SO much to do next week, I'm trying to plan ahead. I need to make some sugar cookies, covered in rolled buttercream, with royal icing decorations. Do you think I can freeze them for a couple days? My main concern is the royal icing colors running when they defrost.

Has anybody done this?

Royal cannot go in the fridge or freezer. The condensation that would form when they come out would melt the decorations.

Maybe do all but the RI decorations?

One of my customers said they did it with my cookies once, and they came out fine. I may be too scared to try!

Thanks for the input!

condensation would only form if you left the cookies exposed to the air. If they are wrapped up air-tight, and preferably inside another container, any condensation will form on the container, NOT the cookies.

I have never tried it with cookies, btw, I just know this because the same rule applies to cakes.
