Is there any way to make fondant pieces dry faster? I made some margarita glasses from fondant and I need them to dry hard. I made them a bit late so i was wondering if there was a way to dry them faster.

Thanks for your help

Welcome to CC barbp5
I make mine with 50/50 fondant/gumpaste about the size of a baseball and add about 1/2 teaspoon tylose
after making the (whatever I am making) I put it in a shoebox and sit it on a shelf in my sewing room and in about 24 hours it is completly dry. If I paint it I just put it back another 24 hrs. HTH

I set my items (GP and Fondant) in front of a low fan and will turn them from time to time. If you have a room with a ceiling fan that would work too but my 18 mo old grandson absconded with my remote and we can't find it now. hee hee
