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 thin...how 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.
nicholas lodge and scott woolley ... say . to put the gumpaste item in the oven on 150 F ... i have done this ..it works great... i put it in there for 2 hrs.. i just watched a video on r/i.. she says to add more meringue.. a pinch at the time.. to thicken r/i... i did not know this..i usually add more powder sugar. i now will add little more meringue powder.. hth
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.
