This may sound like an odd question, but do you put your cookies in a container the first 24 hours after icing it? I have had trouble with dark areas. The problem went away when I didn't cover them. I can't even loosely cover them.
No--I usually let them dry all day or over night if I make them at night to make sure they are completely dry.
The woman who taught me how to make decorated cookies told me that the icing color wasn't mixed enough.
