Dehydrator works great. If you don't have one, place them directly in front of a fan.

I'd be SOL without my dehydrator here in the swamp icon_lol.gif - nothing would ever dry!

Dang it!!! Last time I went ballistic on the basement clutter, I threw out my dehydrator. We were in a big hurry to clean up for a remodel. Rats!

I have placed it directly in front of a fan.

Placing it in front of a fan works depending on how thick your gumpaste is. I have a cake due tonight (shoebox and shoe) I don't think the shoe is going to be useable because I left it in front of a fan all night long and this morning when i checked it was threatening me...touch me and I break! still too wet.
