I haven't used marzhipan, however I have sculpted items out of fondant & love it. It was actually a store bought Wilton fondant. I made my 1" figures about 2-3 days ahead, I wish I would have had a week so I could have done more... and they did take a good day to dry, even though they were that small. Good luck & wish I could be of more assistance!

Thanks for the advice.Can you suggest me how many days before i have to make the fondant shaped items
before birthday
if i make any thing with gumpaste that will also take more time to dry
and how to store these things like apple shaped fondant one
thanks for the advice.
