I'm making lots of fondant leaves for a wedding cake (my 1st!). I don't have enough flower formers for them to dry on. Can I put them in a low oven to help them dry out so I can use the formers again?

I'd love to hear other answers this also. i live in a very humid area and i have a large de-humidifer, so i turned it on high and placed the fondant items in that room. it did ok.

You can make an unlimited supply of flower formers out of foil...just cut pieces of foil slightly larger than your formers and smooth the foil over hte former. Deeper or more cupped formers may require the use of freezer foil.

But otherwise, yes, you can help them dry faster by putting them in the oven on a very low temp.

You can also cut a paper towel roll in half, and cover it with a piece of wax paper.

you can use a food dehydrator as well

I only suggest you use a dehydrator or lay it in a bed of cornstarch to let it dry faster.
