I had made a couple of things out of gumpaste at the beginning of the week for a cake that has to be done tomorrow. They broke, and now I am redoing them. Any tips on getting them to dry super fast?? I don't have a light in my oven, so that option is out. They aren't super thick. Also, my royal icing seems kinda do I thicken it without messing it up?

Lay it on a bed of cornstarch. As for the royal icing, I don't have advice with that since I don't work a lot with it.

For the RI I would think adding more icing sugar would do the trick. As for the GP put it the oven as previously suggested.
