I've made some mmf palm tree leaves to use on a tree like this:
I made them on Sept. 23 and need them for a cake on Sept. 30. They still seem kind of soft, like they'll droop once I get them on the tree. Will they harden in time? Should I make different ones today out of some leftover Wilton fondant I have?
Thanks so much!
If they won't harden in time, can I glue (RI) wire to their undersides. Or do you think the sides will then droop, too?
I would think that they would dry. I use a 50/50 mix of fondant and gumpaste when I need something to dry. If they are not dry, you can always make them out of gumpaste and they will dry super quick.
I would forget the mmf leaves and go for something more sturdy.
I'd forget them too and make some gumpaste. Straight fondant has never dried rock hard for me. If I do use fondant I add tylose to it.
Thanks, everyone! I've still got plenty of time, so I'll just start over...
I really appreciate your help!
