So i ended up needing a last minute banner made of fondant on a cake i'm doing... just a thin fondant strip about 5" long. I cut it out last night but it's not totally dry. Need to assemble it, any suggestions on how to dry this strip of fondant fast? Hair dryer????
You might try sitting it in front of a fan and let the fan blow on high. That will dry it quicker than just sitting there. I am not sure if you should use heat....my fondant can't take heat.
If you have a food dehydrator, I Have heard of people using that to dry fondant items quickly.
hmm,. no food dryer... set on top of warm oven?
Leaving it in the oven with just the oven light on will help it dry faster, but not sure if it's fast enough for what you need.
Well how about a hair dryer on low heat?? That might provide the "air" to dry it.. Without too much heat.
Moving air tends to help dry it out, but in my experience, heat does not help.
I tried heat once, it turned my fondant into a pile of jellatenous ooze. Great if I wanted my piece to look like vomit, not so good for the green petals it was supposed to look like. I found that if you have a hair dryer with a NO HEAT setting, you can use that, but anyway to get cool air circulating around it will speed it up.
set on paper towel cooling rack where air can move. Do you have any of those screens we use to keep our bacon grease from popping out of the pan? I bought one especially for fondant/gp and suspend it over two vases and put a little personal fan for quickly needed drying time.
