How does everyone dry their panels and other misc. gumpaste /fondant panels? If i use parchment, the pieces always wrinkle. What nonstick surface do you all recommend?

thanks

I use a non stick cutting board, one of my friends uses a non stick place mat. You can use any surface as long as it is smooth. If its not non-stick, just dust it well with some corn starch. Remember to turn the pieces over once or twice a day until dry.
HTH!

I use foam sponge (found in the chair cushion section of the craft or fabric store). The fondant/gumpaste gets air circulation from both sides, so no need to turn anything over. Added bonus is things dry a lot quicker! And nothing sticks.

That's a good idea Diane! I think I'm going to buy some... I usually use a piece of foam core or the back of a cake pan. It doesn't wrinkle on those, but it does stick if you don't use enough sugar underneath the piece.
