Wood Buring Stove and Royal Icing do not mix
My daughters class is have a Pumpkin Celebration, because the school doesn't celebrate Hallowee, don't even get me started on that. So I was making sugar cookies for the class. Everthing was going smoothly until yesterday. My husband was home all day and decided since it was cold out he would start a fire in our wood buring stove which is in our kitchen. I made my icing the day before and had it on the counter all colored and in individual bottles. Well when I got home from work yesterday the kitchen was like 85 degrees and my icing was all runny. I refused to add more powdered sugar. I finally put all the icing in the fridge to chill. Only took me an hour to figure out what needed to be done.
Anyway the moral of my store is do not have a fire in your wood burning stove when you need to decorate cookies. It just doesn't mix well.

Baking mom - i've had my share of similar incidents so I feel your pain. It always seems to take a long time that first time to figure out the solution doesn't it? lol
Sugar Boy - thanks for your thoughtful and amusing response. You made my day too :-)

Didn't know that about St. Nick either....I am going to google it.....and start looking for a silver medallion of St. Nick.....Maybe then I can pray to him when I am worried about blotching icing and cookies drying in time to wrap!!!!! Or my on-going sore arm. Thought I was going to die last night when I finally went to bed....but the cookies came out cute
