I am about to cry... I molded my cupstacking cups to the cups without wrapping them in plastic wrap.. will they "let go" of the cups after they dry?

I have the oven on warm with door open.. Will that melt them??? Ohhh please help I have spent sooo much time on these.. Due on Friday.. any advice or help welcome!!

Has the fondant dried yet? have you thought about freezing it?

its still not fully dry.. but see I really thought if I stuck it in the oven... with the door open and on warm it might dry them quicker... I don't know.. ya think the freezer might make them unstick? LOL

If my fondant is sticky or the humidity is high, I use the freezer to unmold tappits and hard molds.. they release much easier.... but if the fondant is still soft you will need to transer it to a plastic covered cup as soon as it releases from the freezer... hope that made sense...

Did you use any Crisco on your fondant? I just made some cups but I greased my cups with Crisco and they came off OK. I just let them air dry naturally. Good luck!!

They are cups.. about 5 inches high...I used the actual cup to mold the fondant cups to....but I cut the fondant a little shorter then the cup.. cause I thought they would slip right off.. I wrapped one cup.. must of got distracted and forgot the rest of them.. icon_sad.gif .. I did corn starch them though I know..

cupstacking cups.. like on the video I sent ya Laura

ok, now I understand icon_confused.gif Leave them at least 10 minutes.. you might have to use scissors to cut the cup and help to loosen it...

Christi........ don't rush them, the freezer won't hurt them, and work fast when you remove them.. it will thaw quickly. Try twisting them to get the cup out too... I am trying to cover every possibility........

Ok the one that was wrapped I got off before I stuck the other ones in the freezer...but it wasn't easy.. AND going to have to color some RI to touch up a crack GRRR .. so I hope the freezer will help to detach the others
