I am making a baby shower cake for Saturday. I made some cute little drop flowers out of Sam's buttercream to put on the cake. I made them Tuesday & Wednesday night and they are still wet. I have them sitting on the table with the fan blowing but they are still not getting firm enough to move.

I also plan on making some fondant or gumpaste stars & butterfies to place on the cake is there a quick way to dry them in time to put on the cake for Saturday?

Help, icon_redface.gif

Sorry, I'm not familiar with Sam's BC - if it's a non-crusting, they might stay that way.

Mix some tylose or CMC powder into your fondant to help it dry faster, or try using gumpaste.
